Subsidising sports, David Bain, health cuts and badly behaved Kiwis

Josie joined Nick Mills and Tim Fookes on Wellington’s Newstalk ZB Friday Forum. This week:

Council support for sports and major events in Wellington. There are suggestions that Wellington City may withdraw support for the Sevens and the Saints lose funding. (Don’t miss the story of how the Saints got their name.)

Josie argues David Bain should get compensation, because whatever you think about his guilt or innocence, it’s irrelevant to the finding of the courts.

DHBs are being asked to make cuts, and the government is targeting preventive health care and mental health.

The backpackers hostel that won’t have New Zealanders to stay because they’re badly behaved binge drinkers.

Josie’s Not Hot this week is the video promoting a change to the flag.
