The Panel with Alexia Russell and Andrew Hoggard (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:05 pm on 21 August 2019

What's a New Zealand bar that holds special memories for you? The controversial Australian talkback host Alan Jones is coming under more scrutiny, as more of the vitriolic remarks he made about Jacinda Ardern came to light through the ABC show Mediawatch. RNZ's own Mediawatch man Colin Peacock joins the panel to explain where this furore came from, and where things might be heading now. Mark Stockdale from the AA joins the panel to explain a bit about how the price of petrol is calculated, and why it varies so much throughout the country. Commentators are suggesting Fonterra is coming to the end of its current iteration, and needs to change drastically to ensure its continued survival.
