Backbenches is a lot of fun. Four MPs are questioned at the Backbenches pub on a few pre-arranged issues every Wednesday evening and it is broadcast live on TVNZ7. I went to this one a couple of weeks ago - yes you can spot me in the audience - and Peter Dunne was one of the MPs.
I just happened to see Dunne over the weekend, and he told me he will be there again this week. Is this to make up for the lack of National MPs in recent weeks? Appearing twice in three weeks is fairly regular, perhaps Dunne thought the time went rather quickly and is going back for more?
Will a National MP turn up this week?
