Fletcher Tabuteau is back after being overseas, as am I in regards to the NZ First chat. Bit gutted I missed the chat with Clayton Mitchell last week, however, Fletcher and I talk about what he did overseas, the upcoming weapon’s expo and the so called proposed bill on NZ Values. I started by asking what he was doing overseas.

The NZ First’s 25th party AGM took place in Tauranga over the weekend and with it came a proposal on immigration, spearheaded by List MP Clayton Mitchell. It is called the Respecting New Zealand Values Bill. The policy, which would require new migrants to NZ to sign up to and abide by a list of New Zealand 'values', was passed by delegates over the weekend, and will be put forward to Parliament. The legislation certainly has people talking, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern yesterday wrote off any Labour Party support on the Morning Report with Guyon Espioner. NZ First Leader Winston Peters is however in support of the Bill, as Mitchell claims it is all about being intolerant of intolerance, and represents the antithesis of racism. Producer Harry chatted with Mitchell Wednesday morning to hear his perspective on his Bill.

I tēnei wiki i tauākī te pāti Kākāriki e tautoko ana rātou i te whakature o te reo Māori ki ngā kura katoa o Aotearoa. E whakahē ana a Aotearoa Tuatahi ki tēra, nā reira i kōrero atu a Lillian Hanly ki a Fletcher Tabuteau mō tēnei kaupapa. I pātai a Lillian ki a ia ki te whakamārama i ngā kaupapa here o te pāti.

This week the Greens announced they support making te reo compulsory in schools. NZ First has been against this and I asked Fletcher Tabuteau to explain this further, starting by asking what the NZ First policies are regarding te reo.

Recently there has been news regarding the possible closure of the longest standing Māori radio station, Te Ūpoko o Te Ika. The news comes as time runs out for an ongoing dispute to be settled between the license holders of the station. The local iwi radio who currently hold the licence due to older legislation put through by a former National government, is looking to expand and wants to merge with Ūpoko. This has meant Ūpoko cannot access its monthly operating funds from Te Māngai Pāho. Operating on its reserve funds means the station may only last until the end of the month and 11 people will lose their jobs. As well as this, the tuakana of Māori radio will cease to exist. There has been a number of calls for the government to step in and stop this from happening. NZ First is an advocate for iwi radio so Lillian Hanly spoke with Jenny Marcroft about her perspective on the matter.

Lillian Hanly speaks with Darroch Ball of NZ First because he was present in a select committee meeting at the end of last month which heard an admission from an auckland based property manager, Rachel Kann, that she routinely asks for bank statements. The committee was hearing submissions on the Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill (No 2) to scrap letting fees. It’s become quite controversial not only because of the question of a breach of privacy, but also the way Rachel Kann talked about possible tenants. Here’s a quote, “They're paying somebody's mortgage and I see a lot of people who are low socio-economic and their bank statements literally will read, 'KFC, McDonalds, the dairy, KFC, McDonalds, court fine', trucks that they buy, goods that they can't afford. You know, I see a lot of mismanagement of money.” We haven’t had a chance to speak with Darroch yet so we start by hearing a bit about him.
