THIS WEEK ON PRIME TV’s “BACK BENCHES”-ELECTION 2014: Watch Wallace Chapman, Damian Christie, the Back Benches Panel and special guests discuss the week’s hottest topics!
SELLING YOURSELF: The political parties got the chance to show us what they are all about during their opening election statements on Saturday night. But was anyone paying attention with the All-Blacks walloping the Wallabies? Who sold themselves the best? Did the messages come across? What effect did the allocated time and budget have on the parties?
GETTING INTO YOUR FIRST HOME: National has announced their plan to get kiwis into their first home which has been rubbished by the opposition who each have their own plan. So, who has the right plan? How do we make homes more affordable? Do we need to build more homes? Dip into our kiwisaver? Introduce a Capital Gains Tax?
