Rail, State of the Nation speeches, TPP

On Andrew Dickens’ Sunday Cafe with Susan Wood:

The City Rail Link is a $4 billion stimulus that will benefit the whole economy. Every decent city has a decent public transport system.

The leaders’ State of the Nation speeches: The Greens’ call for an independent policy costing unit is a good idea.

And Labour’s opposition to the TPP.

Friday Forum

For four years Josie and Nick Mills have joined Tim Fookes for Friday Forum on Newstalk ZB in Wellington.

This week they asked if Wellington feels a bit old fashioned with our shops closed on Anniversary Day. Labour MPs who support the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Extending Wellington airport and the trials of flying for up to 17 hours. Inland Revenue is cracking down on cash jobs. And the Wellington 7s - are they dying?

All this plus Hots and Nots.
