As Minister Little is nearing a redress deed with Ngā Iwi o Taranaki, Mary-Margaret asks what the Minister has learnt from listening to Ngā Iwi o Taranaki over the last couple of years. They also discuss the lack of implementation by this government of changes that Māori justice advocates say are essential for fixing a broken justice system.

Lillian Hanly speaks to Tracey Martin about Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

Lobby groups say fast tracking the consent process for eleven shovel ready projects neglects commitments to climate action, and obstructs consultation with iwi & hapu. The government says infrastructure developments such as these 11 projects will act as stimulus during current economic downturn, but commentator Rod Oram explained to Mary-Margaret why this justification is flawed. Mary-Margaret also speaks to Te Ara Whatu's India Logan-Riley about concerns that fast tracking due process will exacerbate breaches of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and Generation Zero's Jen Coatham adds that an opportunity for climate action has been neglected.

And in this week's Neighbourhood Watch Zoe explains the legacy of branch stacking in Australian politics, and the latest comments by Scott Morrison about the history of slavery.
