Winston Peters cynically donated $158,000 to Starship Hospital. In his weird 4th dimension he imagined that, instead of repaying the money to the statutory authority he gave it to a fluffy charity.
How in the name of all that is reasonably understood by New Zealanders can he possibly imagine that satisfies his obligation?
If you get a rates demand from your city council you pay it to the council, not the Salvation Army.
Peters is a cynical, grandstanding game player. Strip him of the 'baubles of power'.
If you vote him back into office then you are probably senile.
He counts on it.
Good on the board of StarShip for tearing up the cheque.
I'll send them one of my own (for a substantially lesser amount than the one Peter's cynically offered) and so should you.
Peter's media assault on Starship is disgusting.
