The Panel with Clare de Lore and Chris Gallavin (Part 1)

From The Panel, 4:03 pm on 4 July 2019

Business confidence has tumbled, with outlooks at ten year lows, the worst since the Global Financial Crisis. Recent figures suggest our GDP growth is slowing, depsite the Prime Minister's assertion we are tracking well. Economic journalist Bernard Hickey explains why he thinks the Government needs to act now. One of those great David and Goliath stories from the regions. A Cromwell man refuses to be bribed by developers. Rex Edgar has been offered $1 million for his land on the outskirts of the Central Otago township. We talk to Rex about why he wants to keep fighting and what the land is like. Andrew Little has slammed Google for its breaking of suppression order in the Grace Millane murder case. It named her alleged killer in an email of its trends in December. A mistake. But one it seemingly hasn't done anything to stop from happening again. The panellists discuss whether he's right to calling the tech giant out.
