The Panel with Lindsey Dawson and Nevil Gibson (Part 2)

Topics - Although the breakfast news this morning had scientists celebrating landing probe Philae on comet 67P, on this epic Rosetta mission 500 million kilometres away in space, the lander may not be securely attached. We've had a regular procession of people through on The Panel telling us about how iniquitous decile ratings are for schools, and yet they were of course instituted for a reason, and a good one - to target need. So what will we do when they're thrown out, as seems increasingly likely? Schools are looking into new technology that stops teenagers deleting sexual images from their phones. The move comes as schools are increasingly concerned about students' ability to remotely delete explicit images that could be used as evidence in cases of sexual misconduct. Just to return quickly to the vexed topic of bar closing hours. It's a hot topic periodically now in various cities, Dunedin particularly at the moment. There's a proposed 1am one-way door policy, a 3am closing and banning shots after midnight in on-licence premises.
