A former Green MP is pulling no punches with her opinion of James Shaw's leadership. The Party was thrown into disarray on Saturday when the co-leader was not re-elected at its AGM. Any potential contenders now have a week to confirm a challenge against Shaw, who's indicated he is likely to run again. Former Green MP Catherine Delahunty told Kate Hawkesby he's not what the Greens are about. She says the party needs someone in Parliament who's willing to stand up on vital issues, and not just be a lap dog to Labour. LISTEN ABOVE    See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Jack Tame: This time the politicians can't hide from the booze debate

Saturday Morning with Jack Tame

It's perhaps my favourite thing about New Zealand politics. Just about as Kiwi as you can possibly get. Whenever it's time to select an MP's member bill for debate before our parliament, we don't pick it out of some golden, jewel-encrusted box or have it delivered by regal horsemen from an impenetrable Swiss safe.We pick it from the biscuit tin. The biscuit tin. A thirty-year-old, blue-and-white biscuit tin with a label, ‘Members' Bills,' sellotaped on the front.It's as though our democracy is a game of charades.The funny thing about the biscuit tin – aside from it being a biscuit tin – is that it seems to have a habit of throwing forward particularly interesting bills. That's where Louisa Wall's marriage equality bill originated. And this week it happened again. Chloe Swarbrick's booze bill was pulled from the biscuit tin.I'm not someone who prickles at a good time, but I think our collective approach to alcohol is one of the biggest hypocrisies in New Zealand society. We won't legalise cannabis, and we'll live in a state of near-constant panic over the damage caused by methamphetamine, but we do almost nothing meaningful when it comes to alcohol harm.And it's hardly like we don't have the evidence of the harm, and advice on what we should be doing differently. One of the only recommendations from the Mental Health Inquiry that hasn't yet been acted on is this:26. Take a stricter regulatory approach to the sale and supply of alcohol, informed by the recommendations from the 2010 Law Commission review, the 2014 Ministerial Forum on Alcohol Advertising and Sponsorship and the 2014 Ministry of Justice report on alcohol pricing.That 2014 Ministerial Forum was chaired by former Kiwis coach Sir Graeme Lowe, hardly someone who needs to be schooled on the role that sport plays in our society.Chloe Swarbrick's bill would act on his recommendations and restrict alcohol advertising and sponsorship in sport. It would also give local communities far greater powers to decide how many liquor outlets can operate in their neighbourhood.There will be some people who think it's inconsistent for Swarbrick to crack down on booze when she was a public advocate for legalising cannabis. They miss the point. She isn't advocating to ban alcohol. She doesn't want prohibition. She wants to take a few little steps in order to reduce alcohol harm.Alcohol arguably causes the most harm of any drug in New Zealand. Not weed. Not even P. Alcohol. I doubt Chloe Swarbrick's bill will make it into law in its current form, but at the very least our politicians will have to debate it. Until now, every time this issue comes up,They've humm'ed and hah'ed and re-ordered their papers, mumbling and ducking for cover. They're scared of the alcohol lobby. They're scared of being called Nanny State.This time, there is no running from the debate.LISTEN ABOVE

Citrus are “surface-rooting” and hence do not like a lot of “competition” from grass roots, so it pays to keep them mulched and avoid grass growing close to the trunk.Bark, Compost, Chippered branches; anything that suppresses the grass (especially Kikuyu) and will add organic matter is usefulFertiliser?Nah!

So: ensure you have a lot of direct sunlight on your plant; (trim the trees that shade the citrus!)Lemons should be fruiting. Ensure that the load of fruit on the branches is not too heavy (breaking!), so remove fruit accordingly, especially from young trees and prune some off to let the frame-work develop; next year let a few more grow as the tree strengthens its branch system.(Meyer) Lemons have a habit of fruiting well every second year (usually in winter and spring months); therefore it's best to plant two or three lemon trees to have a continuous supply of lemons!Peeled lemons hanging from your tree?

We were only two or three minutes into the game when it happened.The guy had the ball in midfield and I rushed up to mark him. He stepped backwards and brought the heel of his boot right down the front of my right shin. We don't wear shinpads in our grade. Maybe we should. No foul! Play on! Seriously?!Maybe my leg was numb? I dunno. It felt bad when it happened and it looked bad when I stared down at my shin, but I wondered if maybe the freezing weather had muted the pain a bit. It just didn't hurt like it should.This will shock you I'm sure, but contrary to my public profile, I'm not really very tough. I'm not someone who shrugs in the face of compound fractures and third-degree burns. I find pain, painful. I do my best to avoid it. But it wasn't through heroism or bravery that I chose to play on, despite the large slit down my right shin and my blood-soaked sock. Maybe it was adrenalin! It just didn't actually hurt that much.The most painful thing at the After Hours surgery was the wait. Not sure if you've heard, but our healthcare system has seen quieter periods. At first, the lady on the front desk told me it would be five hours before I could to see a doctor.‘Maybe just get it washed out by a nurse.' She said.‘Wrap it up overnight and find someone else to stitch it, tomorrow.' Hmm.The wait was only half that time, in the end. I braced for a terrible sting when they flushed out the would with saline and then jabbed me with anaesthetic, but in the end it was all good. They sewed up my shin like a hole in a pillowcase. I drove home and twisted myself into all sorts of highly-unflattering positions in the shower as I endeavoured to keep the wound dry.The next day wasn't too bad. The nurse at my GP clinic cleaned and dressed my shin. He poked it a bit to see if there was any sign of infection. It felt pretty good.‘Does that hurt?'‘Nah.'‘Do you have a high pain threshold?'He reckoned that last night was a key milestone. 72 hours from the sprig digging out a large strip of my leg, I should know with a reasonable degree of confidence if the wound was infected or if it was healing efficiently, as it should. We should know if the stitches were working.‘All you need to do,' he said.‘Is take off the dressing.'Huh.I started at the corner. I worked up just a couple of millimetres, a tiny little piece of bandage, but I could already see the problem. There was no sign of infection, but every single one of my leg hairs was absolutely, utterly determined not to let the bandage go without a decent fight.I mightn't be very tough. But I am hairy. My leg hair could be accurately described as voluminous. If the shampoo marketing department was feeling a bit creative, I'd be hired immediately for a Palmolive ad. Stroking my leg is like stroking a border collie.I knew what I had to do, of course. Some cliches are cliches for a reason. I tensed my body. Inhaled deeply, to the bottom of my lungs. And I peeled that dressing off my leg like a ripe banana.Riiiiiiiiip.Tears pricked in the corners of my eyes. I gasped like someone waking from a fever dream.It hurt like a bastard.LISTEN ABOVE

Women who choose to leave the workforce or work part-time after having children could be forfeiting between $58,000 and $318,000 in retirement savings, research by NZIER has revealed.The economic consultancy was charged with looking at the key drivers behind the 20 per cent gap between men and women's average KiwiSaver balances by state-owned KiwiSaver provider Kiwi Wealth.It found labour force participation, the pay equity gap, career gaps and changes because of motherhood and low confidence and knowledge of the retirement savings scheme were behind the gap.Christina Leung, principal economist at NZIER, said it wanted to quantify the effect of each driver and come up with policy solutions that could help ease the shortfalls."We know there is a gap but the extent of it was quite important for us to put a value on each of those drivers so that we are aware... and know which of the policy interventions would get the most bang for your buck."LISTEN ABOVE
