This weekend on The Nation...
A New Zealand first: As the Government consults on its plain packaging legislation, Maori Party co-leader Marama Fox debates Imperial Tobacco's Axel Gietz, who's flown in from the UK at The Nation's invitation. Does plain packaging actually work? And is smoking about free choice or saving lives?
Then, is the Government's proposal for "global funding" for schools just bulk funding by stealth? Patrick Gower interviews Education Minister Hekia Parata.
And what happens now British voters have decided to Brexit? We'll have analysis from the UK.
We'll discuss all this and more with our panel: former Green Party chief of staff Andrew Campbell and Iron Duke Partners Director Phil O'Reilly.
