From The Panel, 4:05 pm on 21 December 2018

It seems people are actually less amorous in hot weather despite the accepted idea of summer romances. It seems that divorce is seasonal though with January being the big month for relationships splitting up. Christmas seems to bring all the resentment and bitterness to a head. What the Panelists Jock Anderson and Ruth Money want to talk about. The true meaning behind Christmas seems to be getting less and less coverage. So, we thought we'd talk to the chaplain of the Uviversity of Canterbury Rev Spanky Moore about his feelings about Christmas and what the average university student thinks about the religious side of the celebration. An ageing workforce is said to be a main reason why Parliamentary Service had a staff turnover of 16 percent this year - the highest its ever had, right across Parliament and corporate support. Could it also be a case of stress and sagging morale taking their toll? Weather forcaster Richard Green gives us an overview of what we can expect these holidays.
