The Huddle at 1740


I am on Larry Williams’ show The Huddle tonight with Josie Pagani

Our topics are:

  • The local body elections- that no one votes in. Maybe if everyone turned up to vote then maybe it would have been different too. I wonder what it is about local body politics that makes everyone so apathetic!  
  • Then still with politics and the circus that’s been happening in the US. On Friday there was hope and optimism that there would be a deal done to end the most ridiculous stand off. Now the world’s watching and no longer laughing as the deadline looms for the US debt ceiling vote.
  • Cutting the subsidy for Kiwisaver, with a rider to increase the amount for prospective retirees:

    A lobby group for the savings and insurance industry wants the Government to cut the annual KiwiSaver subsidy and use the money to reduce the tax rates on the scheme in a bid to boost retirement savings.

    The Financial Services Council, whose members manage over $80 billion worth of assets, announced its proposal on how to Supersize Kiwis’ retirement savings at its conference in Auckland today.”

You can listen online or through usual methods.

I will post the audio tomorrow morning.
