Topics - South Auckland send 3000 high-school students into central Auckland for their education. We talk to Robin Duff from the Post Primary Teachers Association, who's based in Christchurch and also seeing the same zoning issues there. Grant Robertson doesn't expect his sexuality to influence the vote for the new Labour Party leader. He thinks his homosexuality won't go unmentioned but says he'll be judged on his Labour values. He says being gay is just an aspect of who he his - just as his like rugby and beer. The top paid CEO in New Zealand is David Hisco, the head of the ANZ bank. David Hisco features on a poster put out by the New Zealand Council of Christian Social Services, advocating for closing the income gap. The poster juxtaposes him with an aged care worker who earns 200 times less. We talk to Paul Barber from the Council of Christian Social Services shortly.
