Joining us tonight to wrap the political year for our final show of 2016…
Deputy Mayor of the Auckland SuperCity – Penny Hulse
National Secretary of Unite Union – Mike Treen
The co-leader of the Maori Party – Marama Fox
and the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and spokesperson for Finance – Grant Robertson
This is our final show, after 7 glorious months. A massive thank you to Andy at Face TV, the Face TV crew, Will and Andy from Slipstream, our amazing producer and host Claudette, Willie Jackson of course and all our guests and commentators. Thanks also to our sponsors, the Aotearoa Credit Union and Voyager Internet.
Willie and I came up with this project because we couldn’t believe the diabolical level of debate from Seven Sharp and Story. In our 7 months we have done more public interest broadcasting than Story and Seven Sharp combined.
We believe a democracy is only as strong as its media and if you are only hearing one side of the story then you have a one eyed electorate.
We have a funding application in with NZ on Air – so we hope to see you next year as the election campaign heats up.
Thank you panelists, thank you whanau for watching, we hope to see you next year.
It’s been a privilege.
