Citizen A - 7pm tonight

Citizen A - 7pm tonight Triangle TV, replayed 8pm Sunday Stratos Sky 89 & Freeview 21

Tune in to join Bomber and his revolving panel of bloggers and Auckland opinion shapers as they offer an up-to-date half hour review of the political media issues of the current week from a very Auckland perspective.

THIS WEEK: Phoebe Fletcher and that awful Cameron Slater...

Issue one:
It's the story that dominated the week, the Christchurch earthquake IS New Zealand's worst natural disaster with scores officially dead, hundreds missing, hundreds injured and costs of up to $16billion. Beyond the shock and condolences, how does Christchurch come back from this , how does NZ come back from this and what did panelists think of the media coverage?

Issue two: On any other week, the Welfare Working groups recommendations to radically change the Welfare State would have dominated news, but hours after its announcement, Christchurch was devastated. What are the impacts of the largest redesign of the NZ Welfare state since it's formation in 1938.

Issue three tonight: Again, on any other week it would have been the top political story, Hone Harawira and the Maori Party have cut a deal allowing Hone to be an independent or start a new party free without challenge to his electorate and he won't run anyone in their electorates. What are the ramifications to this deal?
