    Sunday Panel: Are we being hypocritical about our border exemptions?

    Sunday Panel: Are we being hypocritical about our border exemptions?

    Barbara Genda and Harry Jarman sold their UK house, bought a yacht and set off on a round-the-world trip which they hoped would forge everlasting memories for their children.
    But tragedy struck when their 14-year-old son Eddie was struck by a jetboat and killed while checking the anchor.
    Grief-stricken and unable to continue their journey, they say they are now stuck in French Polynesia after being denied entry into New Zealand to try to sell their boat so they can return home to West Sussex and try to restart their lives.
    It was a bitter decision to swallow for the family who have watched as a stream of superyachts are given exemptions to enter New Zealand provided they spend at least $50,000 each in repair work at New Zealand marine businesses.
    It has also been revealed that the billionaire owners of international America's Cup teams could be deemed "critical workers" in the eyes of the New Zealand Government - who have opened the doors for them to apply for border exemptions before the 2021 event.
    This week, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) indicated that America's Cup teams can now apply for an exemption for their owners to enter New Zealand under the "other critical workers" category.
    This border exemption category would enable Britain's richest man, Jim Ratcliffe, who owns Ineos Team UK, and the owner of luxury Italian fashion house Prada, Patrizio Bertelli, to enter New Zealand.

    Joan Mackenzie: Honeybee and The Gift

    Joan Mackenzie: Honeybee and The Gift

    Honeybee by Craig Silvey
    The new book by the author of the massively popular book Jasper Jones. This is about a teenager and an old man who meet on a bridge one night, both with the intention of throwing themselves off – but become each other’s saviour and enter each other’s lives and worlds. It’s deeply affecting; sad, poignant, funny and warm – I loved it. It’s a very special book.
    The Gift by Edith Eger
    By the author of  The Choice. She was a Holocaust survivor who found her way to the US after the war and went on to have a long career in psychiatry. Specialising in helping people deal with trauma – she strongly maintains that we all have a choice to make about our lives and how we choose to lead them. This new one, The Gift expands on her message of healing and provides a hands-on guide that gently encourages us to change the thoughts and behaviours that may be keeping us imprisoned in the past. It’s subtitled 12 Lessons to Save Your Life.
