Denise Lee joins Laura Kvigstad for their weekly chat. This week they discuss the Terrorism Suppression Bill and the National Party's controversial amendments to the bill that were rejected quickly by government. After that, they touch on Simon Bridges questions being slashed by Speak of The House, Trevor Mallard. This follows the National Party's refusal to remove ads that have been deemed misleading to the public. The Labour Party has also been argued this has breached the 1993 Electoral Act's section 3A, as parties are not permitted to use parliamentary video for election advertisements. Laura and Denise finish up by discussing the recent case of a repeat drunk driving offender being granted residency. The National Party expressed concerns around the decision however it was National MP Michael Woodhouse who granted the individual protected person status back in 2012. Denise says a repeat offender shouldn't have been granted residency as the individual poses a threat to the public's safety.
