15:45 Your feedback, and a preview of the guests and topics on The Panel.
16:07 Topics - A survey, commissioned by the Fish and Game Council, suggests political parties risk losing support this election if they introduce policies that promote economic growth but don't address environmental effects. The Prime Minister is facing hypocrisy claims from his political opponents after he received $165,000 in donations from Auckland's exclusive Antoine's restaurant. Have law changes made it too hard for rural kids to get their driver licences?
16:34 Topics - In his first public appearance since leaving Microsoft's CEO role, Steve Ballmer did an interview with the dean of Oxford's school of business. He talked about the best-and worst-advice he ever got. The Greens are promising they'll push for legislation to lock MPs' and ministers' pay rises to the same dollar amounts ordinary New Zealanders receive. Media are reporting the resignation of the deputy board chairman at Motat - and 20 volunteers have also walked out at the country's largest transport museum. Euthenising unwanted dogs in gas chambers could be soon be a thing of the past.
