Tonight at the Back Bencher pub there are two Back Benches … one is a Special at 8pm on the Job Summit, the other is the regular Back Benches, filmed live just after 9pm.
The panel for the Back Benches Special is a mix of politicians and business experts … Trevor Mallard, Sue Bradford, Phil O’Reilly from Business NZ and Charles Finny from the Wellington Chamber of Commerce. They’ll discuss the effects of the recession on us and what some of the solutions might be.
The regular Back Benches will look at the first 100 days of the John Key government, the report on Corrections and whether the NZ Maori Team should go to South Africa? The panel will be Peter Dunne, Heather Roy, Russel Norman and Chris Hipkins.
I’m going along – should be interesting to see the earlier one especially as hopefully not just squabbling MPs 🙂
