Key's charity push stirs doubts
Herald please take note. When the PM says to a conference of charitable organisations that he would like to see more wealthy people give more to charity, his remarks DO NOT CONSTITUTE A SINISTER SECRET RIGHT WING AGENDA. This foolish and hyperbolic use of the word 'push' is the sort of thing which does The Herald no favours. Leave that junk to the Murdock tabloids.
More importantly, Armstrong opens a window into the psyche of the miserly Ebenezer Balfours of Left. For them, the concept of personal generosity is foreign. They cannot see past the all embracing state. That's why they hate the Churches.
"The Prime Minister's speech to Philanthropy New Zealand's annual conference yesterday will be interpreted by those parties as further evidence that the current National Government is hell-bent on reducing the role of the state - especially when placed alongside cuts in staffing of Government departments and ministries."
Thank God these drab, shriveled and morally constipated people will not be returned to power during my lifetime.
