The Panel with Lynda Hallinan and Jock Anderson (Part 1)
What the Panelists Lynda Hallinan and Jock Anderson have been up to. We're still outnumbered but not the way were were in 1982. Now there are six sheep for every human in New Zealand. "One of the biggest deceptions of a lifetime". That's how Andrew Little phrased the government's failure to deliver a surplus. Is the statement OTT? Shorter trading hours for alcohol in Auckland.

Commercial property owners can claim a tax deduction for a collapsed building yet they can't get a deduction to earthquake strengthen their building. Tax expert Mike Rudd joins the Panel to explain how this works.
