The Panel

Friday 21 November 2014, with Simon Mercep

Josie McNaught and Duncan Webb

We discuss the visit to New Zealand by the Chinese President and what China's insatiable appetite for our exports might actually mean... We'll explore further the phenomenon of unpaid-for petrol and why service station staff might be having their wages docked to cover the loss. The latest on Bill Cosby's fall from grace... an historic test match for All Blacks skipper, Richie McCaw, and what next for Lorde?
