The Panel with Catherine Roberston and Garry Moore (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:33 pm on 7 August 2014

Topics - for sale, for one euro, a house in an idyllic Sicilian village. It's the town of Gangi. The council's selling off 20 homes for a euro in the hope of attracting new life to a quaint hilltop community. We've had versions of this in New Zealand but usually in moribund, remote locations. A sugar daddy, according to the Oxford dictionary, looks after a young woman financially in return for companionship or sexual favours. It may not be a nice accusation from John Key, but as no-one thinks the relationship between Laila Haree and Kim Dotcom is sexual. John Banks is appealing against his conviction for making a false electoral donation claim, as we know, with fresh, new, watertight, "unimpeachable" evidence. There's a crackdown in Wellington on free use of public space that will also target concerts, company picnics, boot camps and tour groups. 62% of people in the Stuff online poll reckon the Council's just trying to make money.
