Nigel Latta’s new TV series is focusing on the big issues currently facing our country and aims to get everyone talking.
The first episode titled “The new haves and have nots” aired on Tuesday 29th July with immense positive feedback from the public.
Sharyn Smart talks to him about the show and life in general.
“I had a sort of interesting university career. I’ve got a Bachelor of Science in Zoology and a Master of Science in Marine Science. I went back and got a Master of Philosophy with First Class Honours in Psychology and then did a post graduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology,” says Nigel.
“It was back in the days when education was better than free, I got paid to go so I could afford things that were interesting, that weren’t necessarily tied to a career, and come out of that without a massive debt. I could never have afforded to do that now. That’s where it’s difficult for kids today because the generation who go their education for free is now telling them you know what … we can’t afford it, you guys have to pay for it yourselves.”
Nigel says it would be easy to solve this problem by getting some of the multi-national companies to pay their fair share of taxes and then most people could have a free education.
