Last week I stumbled across the first episode of Nigel Latta’s six-part TV series. In the lead-up to the election it’s essential viewing. In it he covers issues like home ownership, work and wages, the cost of living, and the growing gap between the haves and have nots.
It’s a timely reminder of the kinds of challenges we’re facing as a nation - things that ultimately affect all of us. New Zealand really can be even better than it is - but that’ll only happen if we face up to the big issues and implement the kind of positive policy that really tackles them.
The rest of the episodes in Latta’s series look equally thought-provoking. They’re set to cover: education, alcohol, child abuse, the justice system and sugar.
