New Zealand First has contributed to its own demise by giving $1 billion to boost Pacific aid. Charity begins at home, and any political party that does not understand that should, and will disappear. John Campbell some time ago asked the Samoan Prime Minister where $30 million went. He is still waiting for an answer.
Labour needs to keep Winston from doing what he usually does, which is put the cat amongst the pigeons when life gets boring. Remember his Super problem which put Labour into office.
St John is but one organisation that we all rely on that cannot even get the money to operate. Perhaps they could borrow $70 million from the people getting $1 billion.
The political party that supports the people deserves your vote. The problem is, winning Lotto might be easier to obtain.
