On Q+A this Sunday, Hekia Parata is live with Shane Taurima. The national standards have been released after years of debate, but many are still unconvinced. So will it help children learn or is it a distraction? And will it tell us anything we don’t already know about those struggling at school? The minister also faces revolt in Christchurch, where schools are promising a fight to the death over proposed school closures. Has she bitten off more than she can chew?

Then, the Doctom spy affair has left the government red-faced and earned our spies a dressing down from the Prime Minister. Is it time to rein in our intelligence agencies? Could the illegality revealed this week cost taxpayers millions? And have we got all the answers yet? Greg Boyed talks to former Prime Minister and Law Commissioner Sir Geoffrey Palmer about just what our spies get up to and New Zealand First leader Winston Peters about the political fallout.

And we cross live to New York to speak with Foreign Minister Murray McCully just hours after he delivers his speech to the U.N General Assembly. What’s his message for the world? And are we poised to win a seat on the security council?

On the panel this week, Dr Raymond Miller is joined by NZ Herald columnist Fran O’Sullivan and former Labour Party President turned Howard League CEO, Mike Williams.
