Night talk: Mitch Harris opening comments, Thursday 20th September 2018.
Tonight: Do you believe what you're told about business confidence in NZ?
- New Zealand consumer confidence drops to six-year low - survey
- GDP up 1 percent - largest quarterly rise in two years
Also tonight: Disturbing footage was shown on the 6pm news of calves being horribly abused. Alan Martyn Cleaver used blunt force trauma against the animals, and allowed workers at Down Cow in Te Kauwhata, Waikato, to club them.
He's been ordered to serve community detention, and his company has also been fined $90,000.
Is this punishment for Mr Cleaver heavy enough? Should he have been sent to prison?
