From The Panel, 4:06 pm on 20 April 2015

What the Panelists Penny Ashton and John Bishop have been up to. A plot to harm people at ANZAC Day commemorations in Melbourne has been foiled. There's a call for heightened security at shopping malls. How happy would you be to have your bag searched routinely? We talk to Prof Al Gillespie from Massey University about the real threat level and where it is. Reverse mortgages are advertised as a way for the elderly with freehold homes to "free up equity". But do they just lead to massive unpaid debt? Dr David Tripe from Massey University lays out the pros and cons of "granny" mortgages.
