It's a spooky, Halloween-edition of The Thursday Wire today! And by that we mean Brexit's been delayed.. again. 

On today's show:

  • Mary-Margaret speaks to academic Neal Curtis about Twitter banning political advertising.
  • Then, Andrew Little is back for his weekly chat. Today, an update on the gun buyback, a response to National’s welfare announcements, and should the government ban conversion therapy. Spoiler, yes. 
  • Plus, for International Desk: Brexit has been delayed again and the UK is going to the polls… Justin gives you all the information you need.
  • Then, Mary-Margaret talks to Emmy Rakete about the Prisoner Correspondence Network
  • And finally, Neighbourhood Watch… Why Aussies might soon need to use facial recognition to watch online pornography.

All that plus poll position, and why do all our listeners seem to be in a Midsommer-esque cult?

Join host Stewart Sowman-Lund for the Thursday Wire!

Lillian Hanly takes us through one of the commemoration days for Te Pūtake o te Riri ki Waitara, Taranaki 2019. Lillian hears from the Prime Minister following the pōwhiri, as well as from some of those who organised the event, Ruakere Hond and Wharehoka Wano, Kelvin Day, manager of Puke Ariki, others who attended for different reasons - Ngahuia Murphy and Jess Mio, and from Mahanga Pihama who directed the NZ Wars: Stories from Waitara documentary now on RNZ. She finishes by asking how we can all contribute to that mahi that needs to happen in recognising this history, being accountable for it, and taking it with us in the reconciliation process.

Hamilton group TOTI are calling for an ‘almost invisible’ piece of national history to be publicly acknowledged this week.

Today is the centenary of the 1919 Women’s Parliamentary Rights Act which for the first time allowed women to stand for election to the House of Representatives - to become MPs.

 

Oscar Perress was lucky enough to speak to TOTI’s Margaret Evans, who also happened to be Hamilton’s first female mayor, from 1989-98, about the legislation and its place in our past, present and future.
