expire - The Public Square

The latest in a regular series of panel discussions on current affairs, streamed live via the Internet.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • New Zealand and Kyoto;
  • the Chinese leadership change and China-NZ relations;
  • New Zealand's nuclear stance; and
  • whether we're more obsessed by Hobbits than our own real 'little people'.

The Panel this time:

  • Mike Houlahan, Editor of D Scene, the Fairfax newspaper with an edgy editorial style and readership of 50,000 in and around Dunedin;
  • Jinty MacTavish, Dunedin City councillor, youth-worker, film-maker and activist;
