We ask the Deputy PM and New Zealand First leader if the Nats have "cut his lunch" over the Zero Carbon Bill, how he's going to stop defamation and slander on the internet, whether we should move Auckland's port to Northland and if he thinks Trump is a shoo-in for 2020.
We track down NZ's representative at Bayer's World Youth Ag Summit in Brazil. The aim of the Summit was to bring young people from all over the world together (100 participants aged 18-25 from 45 countries), to tackle the challenge of feeding a growing population by 2050. We also looked at educating urban youth about the real story behind sustainable agriculture in New Zealand.
