Q+A kicks off with an exclusive interview with Australian foreign minister Kevin Rudd.
Weeks ago Rudd was leading international calls to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya, so we talk to him about the unfolding conflict there and how it all might end. Has the West got its approach right in relation to Libya and other countries in the Middle East facing popular uprisings? And what’s the state of NZ-Australia relations?
Later, in a tale of two cities, Paul Holmes interviews the mayors of Auckland and Christchurch, Len Brown and Bob Parker. Our two largest cities are facing fresh starts, so what’s planned and how will they pay for their mayoral visions? Is it all hot air? And are some tough choices ahead?
Joining Dr Jon Johansson on the panel will be the Rt. Hon. Sir Don McKinnon, former Commonwealth Secretary-General and Chair of Auckland’s Regional Facilities organisation, and Unite union leader and newspaper columnist Matt McCarten.
Q + A is broadcast live 9-10am Sunday on TV ONE and repeated at 9.10pm on Sunday nights and 10.10am and 2.10pm on Mondays on TVNZ 7.
(TVNZ 7 screens on Freeview Channel 7 and Sky TV Channel 77).
Rudd should be interesting on Libya as he has partly led the charge there. I imagine they will ask him a bit about the results of the NSW State elections tonight also.
