Week In Review for week ending 31 January 2014

From The Week In Review, 6:00 pm on 31 January 2014

A review of the week's news including... Lorde picks up two Grammys at America's premier music awards in Los Angeles, Teina Pora is granted leave to appeal his convictions to the Privy Council, a war of words breaks out between the Electricity Authority and an economist who's accused the electricity industry of price gouging, an Auckland blogger who called a West Coast man "feral" while his family was still mourning his death accuses the man's mother of making death threats, Labour promises to pay 60 dollars a week to almost all families with newborns for the baby's first year of life, and a fine example of how hardy they breed them in the Deep South.
