Back Benches is Back – 10 April 2013

THIS WEEK ON : Watch Wallace Chapman, Damian Christie, the Back Benches Panel and special guests discuss the week’s hottest topics!

MARRIAGE EQUALITY: The 3rd reading of Louisa Wall’s marriage equality bill is a week away. Will it pass? What is the difference between Marriage and a Civil Union? Why get married? Does allowing gays to marry diminish the meaning of traditional marriage? Is marriage merely about commitment? Or is it about families? And what does it mean for our children?

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT?: Is the old adage true—we are what we eat? If so, then are we eating good healthy things? Or do we only think so? The Government is changing the way food & drink makers can label their foods. No more claiming healthy or low in fat if the company can’t back it up. But how many of us look at the labels? Do these regulations go far enough? Will it make us healthier?

There are two ways to get in on the pub political action:
First, you can join the live audience in Wellington’s iconic Backbencher Pub on Wednesday, 10th of April at 6pm. Filming begins around 6:15pm.

Or watch us that night on PRIME TV at 10:30pm!
