Q+A Tomorrow

March 26th, 2011 at 1:48 pm by David Farrar

TVNZ says:

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.

    I head Paul say he might have Goff on the show.

    I was pleased he read my email on air in response to his suggestion that King could take Goff’s place after taking part in the cover up.

    Exclusive from the Krudster, pull the other one. Rudd is a relentless narcissistic egomaniac who will give an interview to anyone on anything (as he’s an expert on everything, that’s OK) as long as it gives him some publicity oxygen. I doubt he’ll be interesting on Libya unless by interesting you mean “will reveal how CRITICAL to the whole process of mobilizing the West against (something) the brilliant foreign minister of Australia was”.

    I wonder if Rudd will be asked about Labors ‘carbon pollution’ tax?

    Presently they’re trotting out the same old tired crap that National did here for the ETS.

    Of course, we didn’t have a Tim Flannery, who despite being a Gaia worshiping, dyed in the wool, climate alarmist can’t help but tell the truth some times.

    the whole libya situation is a farce.

    The no fly zone simply delays the inevitable.

    Gadafi has tanks and heavy weapons.

    The rebels have toyota hiluxes and a hodge-podge of light weaponry.

    And, who are these rebels? They might be dodgy as hell too.

    I reckon they made a large mistake by going in half-hearted. Better not to go in at all.

    What Ed Snack said.

    It took me several seconds to realise TVNZ wasn’t being sarcastic. KRudd’s ego means he’d stop to harangue a kindergarten outing on the meaning of “programattic specificity” (and frequently has).

    TVNZ thinks they have an “exclusive”? How pathetic.

    also Rudd has affirmed Australia committment to Christchurch,
    in the rebuild,
    why don’t we just do it now,
    get down on our knees and beg to be their eighth state,
    beautiful Australia.

    That’ll be interesting. I haven’t heard ANYTHING about what Bob Parker or the city council has planned for Chch. I just keep hearing everybody else’s opinion.

    They’ve cancelled the interview with Brown and Parker and are talking to Goff instead.
