From The Week In Review, 1:00 am on 27 October 2017

A review of the week's news including... The new Labour-led government is officially in place, Southern DHB confirms there are over 500 urology patients waiting longer than they should for treatment, did the National Party breach copyright with their use of a piece of music that sounded like Eminem?, a convicted double murderer to ask the new Prime Minister for a pardon, a newly released survey of high-rise buildings in Auckland and Wellington shows nearly all of them fail key earthquake standards, a road safety campaigner says it's pointless for the police to just lecture young offenders on the risks of fleeing them, an angry shareholder calls Fletcher Building 'a disaster company' at it's annual general meeting, the country commemorates The New Zealand's Wars and our new Bird of The Year is poisoned.
