Old news now, but we’re running at a kind of deficit: A burger dude flipped out. Are there lessons to be learned from the infamous Ekim Burgers Facebook rant? Should you have to sit a license exam before dining out? You must be this snide to ride?
Bill English is about to unveil his new budget, with all the flourish of a magician who’s realised he’s stuffed up the trick and hopes you’ve forgotten what your card was. Meanwhile Key is still talked about as a hairpulling asshole – how has this new title affected his recent business overseas?

Also, Facebook users have their say about people having their say about the sword over Campbell Live’s head.
We’re both back. Not like zero hour contracts at Restaurant Brands – those are gone.
Campbell Live has an existential threat. It’s not a home improvement show, so this was in the post. What does NZ look like without this current affairs show which has weaved its way into the machinery of how good things get done?
And we dip into the rank mouthbreather stinktank to hear their views of a think tank’s New Zealand rankings.
Coley is still sitting in for Dan, who is in gaol for mattress fraud.
Today we talk about more sombre subjects, particularly about male-on-female abuse and sexual assault. There’s the automatic cultural rehabilitation of abusive male artists, the IPCA’s recent report into the Police’s mishandling of the Roasbusters case, and the dismissal and silencing of women just in general.
It’s not all gloom, however, as our MBC section lets you know – you could be rich!
Next episode in around a fortnight – now Dave is going on a quest for a while too.
