Meghan Markle blows away royal protocol with powerful speech about the right to education for girls
In just four minutes the Duchess of Sussex has told the world she won't be shying away from her feminist roots now she is a member of the royal family. Meghan's speeches overnight in New Zealand and last week in Fiji delivered powerful messages about women's suffrage and the right to education for girls and women. In doing so the former Suits actress has put to rest speculation that protocols preventing members of the royal family speaking out on political issues will not stop her from championing causes including women's rights and racial equality. In her two-minute address at a reception celebrating the 125th anniversary of New Zealand becoming the first country in the world to grant women the right to vote, Meghan issued a "bravo" to the nation for its history-making move.

Thousands turn out in Croatia’s capital celebrating national team’s valiant Football World Cup
Euphoria gave way to a mixture of disappointment and pride for Croatia fans after their national team lost to France in its first ever World Cup final. The entry into the World Cup final in Russia brought the country of 4 million people to a standstill, after officials and the media described the event as the biggest in Croatia's sports history. "Croatia has fallen as a hero!' proclaimed the Index news portal. "Croatia's team has managed to unite the whole country!" Fans in the capital Zagreb - many wearing the team's red-and-white checked shirts or wrapped in national flags - crammed into squares and streets and were full of hope and cheers until the last moment. As the game ended 4-2, they couldn't hide sadness but many said they were impressed by what Croatia has achieved at the tournament. "Of course I am sad. I could see them lift the trophy, but this is really fantastic," Aleksandar Todorovic said. "We were great!" Waving flags and singing songs, the fans kept up their spirits as the crowd partly dispersed from Zagreb's main square. Firecrackers went off as the state TV proclaimed that "we are still not aware of what we have done." Many fans went on celebrating into the evening. Croatia's Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said the national team are "the first in the world for me." "People are happy as if we have won and that's the way it should be," Plenkovic added. "This is a miraculous success for Croatia and we should be very, very happy." The fans were particularly proud that the team captain, Luka Modric, won the Golden Ball after being voted the best player of the World Cup. "We have achieved so much," the 26-year-old Sofia Halinovcic said. "This is the best ever we did." Halinovcic contended that "we had great expectations, but we still need to process what we have done." Croatia is planning a huge welcome ceremony for its players that will include celebrations at the main square in Zagreb and a reception with the country's president.

Winston Peters reduces Parliament debating chamber to hysterics with clever comeback on
The National Party may be very displeased New Zealand hasn't followed suit with Britain's allies in expelling Russian diplomats, but for Winston Peters the threat of Soviet surveillance is nothing new Under a barrage of prodding during Parliamentary question time today, the Foreign Minister was asked flatly "for how long has he been aware of Russian intelligence activity in New Zealand," by National Trade spokesperson Todd McClay. "Since I was a young boy," Mr Peters replied, to raptures from his side of the House. This did not dissuade McClay however, who for the second straight day relentlessly tried to get a concession out of Mr Peters that Russian diplomats and spys exist in New Zealand embassies. The Opposition insists the Government should expel them if so, in solidarity Britain over the Salisbury nerve agent attack on March 4. Yesterday in question time, Mr Peters said the government was acting on advice from the NZSIS.

From desk job to an All Blacks call up  Hear Karl Tu’inukuafe’s Hollywood tale from health issues
If you had told Karl Tu'inukuafe 12 months ago he would soon have a Super Rugby contract, he wouldn't have believed you. So imagine how the 25-year-old is feeling now, having been called into the All Blacks. Tu'inukuafe told reporters today he was still in disbelief at being called into the squad for next month's series against France. "I got a missed call and then a text and it was from the All Blacks manager. "I called him back and he said ‘congratulations’ – it was unreal." The front-rower says he’s been blessed for the incredible tale which started back at Wesley College in 2010 when he was frontrowing with Chiefs teammate Nepo Laulala. Tu'inukuafe made Counties Manukau age-grade teams but took a few years off the game, with a doctor's visit proving to change his life. “I was living in Mangere when I got married and I chucked on the weight because I wasn’t playing. "About 2013-14, I was sitting around – I had a desk job with security – so I just put on the weight and then I talked to the doctors about feeling a bit weird and he gave it to me straight; 'You've got to lose weight'." Tu'inukuafe opted to join his cousins at Takapuna Rugby Club to help solve his health issues. "They were just saying I should come along so I decided to join them. I thought it would be fun playing with the family. "I thought rugby would be an easier way to lose weight than to do it on my own."

Daughter of Tutira Mai Nga Iwi composer says we've been singing the song wrong for over 50 Year
The daughter of the man who composed the iconic Maori waiata Tūtira Mai Ngā Iwi says New Zealanders have been singing the wrong words since her father created it more than 50 years ago. Ngatai Huata told TVNZ1's Te Karere how her father, Cannon Wi Te Tau Huata came up with the waiata in the late 1950s, while driving past Lake Tūtira, teaching her and her siblings the words as he made it up. The song was then picked up by the mass populous in the 1960s, with the Ministry of Education publishing the song in New Zealand schoolbooks. This is where the mis-translation of the song began according to Ms Huata. "They never sought consent, never bothered to find out who wrote it, and they consequently wrote the wrong words," she said. She says the original third-to-last line in the song was "kia tapatahi" not "kia ko tapatahi" as it has been taught for generations. Ms Huata told Te Karere her father was a big advocate for the Maori people to rearm their morals and values, but the waiata was written for all people, regardless of their race, creed or political stances. The waiata has recently been in the spotlight after the All Blacks used it as a rallying cry for the nation during the tour by the British and Irish Lions.

‘I have sleepless nights’ – New Zealand war hero Willie Apiata opens up about his personal struggles
Victoria Cross recipient Willie Apiata says he opened up about his personal struggles for mental health advocate Mike King's I am Hope tour in the hope he can help others In a recent interview with TVNZ1's Marae, the former New Zealand SAS soldier said it wasn't easy being so open about his experiences as in the Defence Force. "I can hear and feel all the sounds, the pressures, you know, everything I was experiencing at that moment just from talking about it," Mr Apiata said. "I have my good days and my bad days and you know when I talk to the public and tell my story it takes me back … like I was there yesterday." Mr Apiata was awarded the Victoria Cross for New Zealand back in 2007 for his bravery under fire in Afghanistan. In 2004, the then corporal in the New Zealand Special Air Service Troop was on patrol when his troop was attacked. Under fire Mr Apiata risked his life to save one of his comrades injured in the attack. Mr Apiata says the night of the attack has caused him many sleepless nights. "It all comes to me in my dreams and you know there are songs that will trigger it." Visiting a psychologist once a month enables him to speak about his experience and how it is affecting him. "I talk to somebody about it and they just need to listen." Mr Apiata has also spoken to the public about his struggles - joining Mike King as he toured the country talking to crowds about mental illness. "All the groups I've spoken to, it's about connecting them to their emotions and trying to relate my story to something that may happen in their lives. "You know we all have traumatic episodes that happen in our lives. And you know my family and myself we've lived through those – family violence through alcohol and they old days of how things use to be; separated families, it all affects us in some way. "And also my career as being a soldier in the Defence Force, the action that happened that night it'll live with me for the rest of my life."

Ben Smith cracks up after reporter tells him he's old enough to be Jordie Barrett
He may be nearly old enough to be their dad, but Ben Smith is just enjoying playing in the All Blacks' back three alongside young stars Rieko Ioane and Jordie Barrett - and he's adamant he's keeping up with them. Smith, 32, was told by a reporter he was old enough to be a fatherly figure towards Ioane and Barrett, who are both 21. He admitted it wasn't something he ever thought about. "I suppose I'm early thirties, so I know I’m getting on a wee bit, but as far as my body goes I’m feeling bloody good and yeah still trying to chase around those young fellas," he said. Smith was shifted from his usual role at fullback to the wing for the All Blacks' first Test against France with Barrett taking the No.15 jersey - a shift he said he didn't mind. "To me it doesn’t really worry me if I’m playing on the wing or at fullback. "I think the way the game's being played now, there's certain times in the game where you end up in a few of those positions anyway. "So I enjoyed getting out there on the wing, and working alongside Jordie and Rieko to try and do our bit for the team back there was enjoyable."

'Boy' star James Rolleston emotionally speaks of his close friend's injuries and possibility of pris
It's tough for Kiwi actor James Rolleston to speak about the aftermath of the car accident that almost claimed his and his close friend's life. Rolleston was driving in Opotiki last year, over corrected going around a corner and crashed. Both him and Kaleb Maxwell, who described Rolleston as his 'brother' were left with horrific injuries. "People that suffer from a car accident aren’t the only ones who suffer," Rolleston said on TVNZ1's Sunday Special, Wait For Me Hollywood. The documentary follows Rolleston and his family to restorative justice with Kaleb and his family. "I'd just like to apologise to our bro Kaleb and his family. The decision I made on that night was a poor decision," he said. Kaleb suffered five broken vertebrae, a lacerated kidney, a dislocated sternum and collapsed lungs. "I just felt damaged, that I injured my mate." "If he hadn't survived, I honestly don't think I’d be here today," Rolleston said. But when asked if the accident had changed their relationship, Mr Maxwell said "it hasn't changed at all". "We're just like family, brothers. More than friends." Rolleston emotionally spoke on the documentary, saying the realisation he could have faced prison time was hard to hear. Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/OneNewsNewZealand/

'We'll keep them running' – passions run high in NZ as Holden closes last Aussie car factory   1 NEW
It's the Aussie car that's long been a Kiwi favorite. But 69 years after making its first mass-produced vehicle, Holden has called it quits, closing its doors at the company's Elizabeth factory in South Australia. The first car, the 48-215 (but often called the FX or Humpy Holden), was promoted as Australia's own car. Then-Prime Minister Ben Chifley launched it, declaring "she's a beauty". The last ever Australian-made car has rolled off the production line today. For Aucklanders Mark and Rich Grey, it's the end of an era. "I think they'll become a bit of a cult car," Mark told 1 NEWS, proudly standing in front of his restored 1953 Holden FX. His nephew Rich says there are 16 classic cars in the family. "Some people collect stamps for a hobby, we collect cars. Little bit more expensive, but we enjoy it," Rich said. "We'll keep [the Holden spirit] alive in our old girls. "These old Holdens never die. We'll keep them running. There'll still be the passion there." The uncle and nephew will drive in the End of an Era Cruise to raise money for St John’s ambulance tomorrow.

New Australia land Australian ad calls on Oz and NZ to unite with Ardern as PM   1 NEWS NOW
A humorous Australian advertising campaign has called on New Zealand to "bridge the ditch" with Australia over our shared love of lamb, the "smell of unity". Meat and Livestock Australia launched their summer campaign on Australia Day today, addressing the slew of controversies which have come out of the country in recent years, including Cricket Australia's ball tampering scandal, their revolving door of prime ministers and the right-wing party One Nation, led by Pauline Hanson, Ad News reports. In the video, Kiwis and Aussies meet halfway between the two countries over a barbecue, sitting on a floatie, as Australians proposes that the two countries unite to become "New Australia-land". "Think about it - we've got awesome stuff," Australia's "lambassador" says. "You've got awesome stuff. Most of our stuff is already your stuff ... Best of all, you get to share our prime lamb. "And we can share your Prime Minister," an Australian politician adds. "Sounds like a Fair Trade Agreement," one of the Kiwis responds. "So what do you say we bridge the ditch and do this?" the woman asks, referring to the Labour Party's election campaign slogan. "I guess we gotta check with Jacinda first," the other Kiwi adds. The Australian politicians then call the Prime Minister as Kiwis and Aussies, all lounging in floaties, tell her to "come join the party".

Family keep vigil as police call off shoreline search for teen swimmer at dangerous Auckland  1NEWS
Police have called off their second day of searching the shoreline for a 16-year-old who is believed to have drowned yesterday at a West Auckland beach where his family was camping. Local boaties, fishing vessels and a police helicopter helped comb the sea yesterday near the choppy shores of Whatipu Beach, where two people went into the water around 1pm but only one person came out. Staff at the campground where the boy’s family was staying called police around 1.30. The search was called off last night as darkness set in – the boy’s family maintaining a vigil at the shore, waiting for his return. It resumed at 8.30 this morning, but after four hours police decided to abandon the shoreline search and focus instead on providing support to the family. A police helicopter will continue to make sporadic aerial searches and Surf Life Saving will perform sweeps of the area in coming days, police said. Whatipu Beach is not reguarly patrolled by surf lifesavers, and the entrance to Manukau Harbour is known for its large waves and dangerous currents. Jeremy Saunders, who has lived out in Whatipu for nine years, told 1 NEWS today he’d never go out in the water, which he described as extremely dangerous.

Kuga owners say Ford took too long to launch recall after car fire over three months ago
Ford Kuga customers in New Zealand are questioning why the company took so long to recall vehicles after a 1 NEWS investigation into under-hood fires Our investigation into Ford Kuga fires has led to the carmaker recalling more than 900 vehicles in New Zealand as part of a global probe in which more than 450,000 thousand cars are being recalled worldwide. Former Kuga owner Eden O'Connor is still fearful about driving any car after her 2013 Ford Kuga caught fire out of the blue last December, with children in the back. "It is kind of hard, like knowing that on the 16th of December all five of my family members including myself could have died," she told 1 NEWS. Our story about Ms O'Connor's incident led Ford to investigate the problem. Ford says it's aware of two car fires in New Zealand and is now recalling 900 Ford Kugas made between 2012 and 2014, and 69 1.6 litre Ford Fiesta STs made between 2013 and 2015. The vehicles will undergo a two-stage repair process that includes adding a new sensor to control engine heat. Ford South Africa has already recalled more than 4000 Kugas and the carmaker will now recall almost half a million globally. Ms O'Connor says Ford has taken too long to act. "It's pretty scary to know that they've let people drive the car so long knowing what happened to my car." Ford claims it was a complicated issue to evaluate. The company said these models are at risk of catching fire when the engine overheats. But despite that warning, it says the safety risk does not mean customers need to stop driving these vehicles. It has still left 2014 Kuga owner Ebony Seym nervous behind the wheel after recently having engine cooling problems repaired. "People shouldn't be allowed them to drive them," she said. "When we first went into Ford we were told it was unsafe to drive." The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment says customers affected by the recall could be entitled to a refund or replacement under the Consumer Guarantees Act "If they can't reach any kind of resolution with Ford then the next step in the process is to take that to a dispute tribunal," said Mark Hollingsworth, MBIE consumer protection manager. Ford is confident it has got a permanent fix for the issues and is advising customers to see their dealer about any problem

First British Navy ship in more than 20 years berths at Auckland's Devonport Navy Base   1 NEWS NOW
Forty million items of plastic, on one of the world's smallest and remote islands. It's a sight which is hard to fathom, but it's one encountered by crew on a British warship on its way to New Zealand. HMS Montrose today became the first Royal Navy warship in more than 20 years to berth at the Devonport Navy base in Auckland. While its crew is trained for battle, they've been helping record information in another kind of battle entirely – plastic in the Pacific Ocean. Henderson Island in the Pitcairn Island group was one of their remote targets. "It's really tragic as a mariner to see just how much plastic waste has washed up on these otherwise pristine beaches," Commanding Officer Conor O'Neill told 1 NEWS on arrival into Auckland. "Some of it's fishing gear... it's more plastic barrels, plastic chairs, grills, netting - all sorts of plastic waste ... which has clearly been dumped in the ocean," he said. The more than 200 people on board were greeted by an impromptu haka, and Commander O'Neill said he'd never witnessed anything like it. "I've never been greeted in quite such spectacular style,' he told 1 NEWS. Also on board was the ship's sole New Zealander, Petty Officer Heidi Tait, who left for Britain almost a decade ago on her OE, joined the navy and stayed for her new life. She hasn't been home to New Zealand in about two years. "I saw there were a lot of people on the jetty and I didn't really know what to expect at all, and then they started doing the haka and it was incredibly dramatic, absolutely fantastic.

Workplace bullying causes some Kiwis to suffer mental health issues   1 NEWS NOW   TVNZ
New Zealand has a tendency to normalise and trivialise the issue of bullying at work, according to a director of a workplace agency, who says it needs to stop. Just under a decade ago New Zealand was ranked as having the second-worst rate of occurrence in the developed world with one in five workers afflicted. Director of Culture Safe New Zealand, Allan Halse, told TVNZ 1's Breakfast programme a quarter of the agency's clients have been diagnosed with mental health issues, leaving him "horrified". "We've got probably 25 per cent of our clients and we would have over 80 right now...have actually entered the mental health unit because they have either had mental breakdowns, they are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder or something similar but they are certainly under medication, anti-depressants or sleeping tablets," Mr Halse said. "It's a lot worse than I ever believed it could be. "It has horrified me over the last few years." Mr Halse said a lot of workplace bulling behavior is subtle and takes some time to notice work, such as colleagues trying to undermine others and "setting them up to fail." "Typically employers will defend bullying managers by saying they're a strong manager but its really easy to see the difference between a strong manager, an authoritative manager, and a workplace bully." "In Australia they have worked out the cost to the Australian economy as somewhere between $6-36 billion per annum, it's massive. "From New Zealand's point of view, being second worst in the world, it means we are getting people coming into our country that go into a workplace were bullying has been normalised and they are horrified and can't cope with it." Mr Halse says New Zealand needs to treat workplace bullying as a health and safety issue, rather than an employment issue.

'How unprepared is he for leadership'   Winston sledges Simon Bridges after he hits
Winston Peters has today defended the lack of any Russian intelligence personal being expelled from New Zealand in solidarity with Britain, during a barrage of questions by National in Parliament today. Speaking in Parliamentary question time, the Foreign Affairs Minister was repeatedly asked by National trade spokesperson Todd McClay why New Zealand hadn't followed suit of many of Britain's allies by expelling any Russian diplomats or spies. Mr Peters said the government was acting on advice from the NZSIS. "I'm advised by the NZSIS, and so has the Prime Minister been, that there is no individual here in New Zealand that fits the profile of those being expelled by other countries - that is people within the embassies in other countries," Mr Peters said. "If there were we would have taken action a long time before Salisbury. "Having been in politics for some time I prefer to listen to the NZSIS, I'd rather listen to people with experience than a few flighty journalists from abroad. "And if they want to make the kind of noise that Simon Bridges is making right now, showing how unprepared he is for leadership because he's prepared to react to every phone call from some foreign embassy rather than his own national interests." Many of Britain's allies are acting in solidarity with Britain after its government blamed Russia for attacking a former spy with nerve agent in England. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that while other countries are expelling "undeclared Russian intelligence agents" — or spies — they haven't found anybody in New Zealand fitting that profile. But security analyst Paul Buchanan told Radio New Zealand the politicians are trying to wriggle out of their responsibilities and their stance has made New Zealand a laughing stock. He says some of the Russians kicked out of other countries are regular diplomats and the expulsions are often only symbolic. Russia's ambassador to Australia says the dozens of countries that have expelled Russian diplomats in response to the recent nerve agent attack on a former Russian military intelligence officer and his daughter in Britain are "not a significant number." US President Donald Trump is speaking with leaders from France and Germany to praise the coordinated expulsion of Russian intelligence officers from their countries in response to Russia poisoning a former spy on British soil. That's according to the White House, which says Trump spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in separate calls today. The leaders "expressed support" for the move and "praised" the announcement by other Western allies who have followed suit. The United States, NATO, 16 European Union nations and some other countries have announced they would expel more than 130 Russian diplomats in response to the nerve agent attack on a former Russian intelligence officer and his daughter in Britain.

'It's just ridiculous'   All Blacks coach Steve Hansen fires shots at World Rugby's

Far North cop pursues wanted man during 'slowest pursuit' over rocks on water’s edge
Kaitaia police are searching for a motorist and passenger following a low speed police chase through water and around the rocks that ended when the officer puncturing his tyre. Senior Constable Dion Masters attempted to pull over a Mitsubishi RVR yesterday at 10am in Ahipara concerned at the condition of the vehicle. When the driver refused, Constable Masters began what he described as the "slowest pursuit" he had ever experienced travelling an average pace of 45 kilometres an hour. At its peak, he said they reached 70 kilometres an hour in a 100 kilometre speed zone. The chase, which lasted around five minutes, saw Constable Masters chase the car around the coastline at Shipwreck Bay, but he had to be rescued by his colleagues. "I had to call off the pursuit not because it became too dangerous but because of a vehicle malfunction, I got a flat tyre," he said. Police found the vehicle abandoned several kilometres away at a look-out but were unable to tow the car because it had been locked up. Police returned several hours later to find the vehicle had been collected. Police are trying to track down the owner of the vehicle who is known to them and say he is wanted over a number of other crimes. The chase was captured on video by members of the public and Constable Masters said he has been copping a fair bit of flack from his colleagues.

Humble Akira Ioane plays down chances of first official All Blacks selection despite stellar
Blues loose forward Akira Ioane isn't getting caught up in the excitement of this weekend's All Blacks squad naming for next month's series against France, saying there's another rival that needs to be taken care of first.

Ioane admitted he would be "pretty emotional" if he was selected for the squad on Sunday - his first official selection after he was called in as injury cover during last-year's end-of-year tour. "It showed me what it's like [to be an All Black]," he said. "For me, mentally, it made me focus more on this year." Should Ioane be selected, he could get a chance to play in front of his family early on with the first Test taking place in his home town at Eden Park - but he's remaining humble about that dream.

PM tells Muslim community in Christchurch this is not New Zealand
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told members of a Christchurch refugee centre and Muslim community representatives she had "three incredibly important roles" in the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attack at two mosques that left 49 people dead. "One is to bring the message of love and support and grief of the people of New Zealand," she said, alongside Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters, Opposition leader Simon Bridges and Green Party co-leader James Shaw. "New Zealand is united in its grief and we are united in our grief." Ms Ardern said she brought the country's "desire to show in whatever way they can, that physical support and love that they have for our Muslim community". Her second role was "to ensure your safety, your freedom to worship safely, your freedom to express your culture and religion". "You were quick to mention this is not the New Zealand that you know. I want to reaffirm that today. This is not New Zealand." She said the only part of the last 24 hours that was New Zealand "is the support you are seeing. But nothing that led up to it is who we are or who this city is". "We need to keep having a conversation around how we ensure your ongoing safety in the aftermath of this horrific attack." Ms Ardern said her last role was to ensure the Muslim community have the space to grieve, "while we make sure we take care of those concerns that may not be in the immediate aftermath but will be in the days and weeks to come". "There will be questions around how we ensure people's livelihoods, how we ensure they can meet day to day needs when they have lost often what will be primary breadwinners. We need to acknowledge the victims here." Opposition leader Simon Bridges also spoke, telling the community, "we are with you". "We are all here united. "I stand here to show that complete unity of the Parliament of New Zealanders behind our Prime Minister, with you, condemning what has happened, wanting to support you and show you the love and compassion that you have and all New Zealanders have, given the tragic things that have happened," Mr Bridges said.

He's back! All Blacks captain Kieran Read makes successful return to rugby in bruising
All Blacks captain Kieran Read has made a successful return to the rugby field this afternoon after lining up for Counties Manukau in a pre-season Mitre 10 Cup match against Tasman. Read played the first 40 minutes of the exhibition match in Manurewa today having overcome a long-term back injury that required surgery and kept him sideline since November last year. The 32-year-old played at No.8 in the match, getting involved in any way he could with tackles, runs and work at the breakdown. The game wasn't just a return from injury for Read but also a return to his original province, having played for Counties Manukau in age-grade play before paving his professional path with a switch to Canterbury starting in 2006. Despite not being named as a squad member for the recent French series due to his slow recovery, Read trained with the All Blacks as they prepared for games each week. The last time Read pulled on the black jersey was in Cardiff last year when the All Blacks rounded off their successful Northern Tour with a 33-18 win over Wales. Lock Sam Whitelock captained the side in the 3-0 sweep of France in this month's June Test series in Read's absence.

Are mobile truck shops preying on vulnerable people in South Auckland    1 NEWS NOW   TVNZ
South Auckland woman Apitanga Siliva was on the verge of losing everything, including her home, because of the debt she racked up buying products from mobile traders. Numerous South Auckland Pasifika families have been left thousands of dollars in debt to mobile traders. The products they sell may sound cheap, but they come with high interest and penalties for payments missed. Shopping regularly at these mobile truck stores caused Ms Siliva to slide further and further into debt. "It was so bad. I think it was way over $10,000. It would just pile up and it’s really, really bad," Apitanga Siliva told Tagata Pasifika. Financial advisors say many consumers don't understand what's in their contract with mobile traders. Tagata Pasifika reporter Alistar Kata looked into how much of this issue comes down to the buyer's responsibility. Watch her report above.

'Let me tell you, sunshine'   Winston Peters calls Simon Bridges' Budget speech 'devoid of ideas'
The Deputy Prime Minister spoke today in parliament about Budget 2018, highlighting the recent boost to foreign affairs and reiterating the notion of a transformative economy. "The adaptive work will take longer than one Budget, but today a strong foundation has been laid," Winston Peters said. "There's much more work to do, and we look forward to fulfilling and continuing our role as a constructive force in the coalition to achieve positive change for our supporters and, indeed, for all New Zealanders." Mr Peters also used his speech to criticise the Opposition, calling National Party leader Simon Bridges' speech "devoid of ideas, riddled with clichés, and speeches like that are why they created the word 'vacuous'". National MP Tim Macindoe at this point asked, "What's the current poll rating? Mr one per cent." "Let me tell you, sunshine," Mr Peters replied. "I'm here after all these years because we know how to get a poll up, but not that failure, not that member there." Mr Peters called Mr Bridges, "Mr Simon Slick Bridges", "Mr Simon Soundbite Bridges", "Mr Simon One-way Bridges", and "Mr Simon Short-term Bridges". The speech came after Mr Bridges' speech on the government's Budget, which he said was based around "borrowing more, taxing more and spending more".

Ultralight backpacking trend hitting New Zealand raising safety questions   1 NEWS NOW   TVNZ
The trend of ultralight backpacking is growing in popularity here in New Zealand, with hikers going to extremes to carry as little weight and gear as possible. And while it has its advantages, it's raising questions around safety. Czech man Rostislav Nevlud is walking the 3000km Te Araroa trail – a tramping route that stretches the length of the New Zealand. "If you are just ultralight, you can go so far so fast," he says. The base weight of his pack (excluding water or food) is 3.6kg. Nevlud says that surprises most people. Ultralight backpacking has been popular in the United States and Europe for more than a decade, and is becoming more common in New Zealand.
