  1. One can show your support for them at http://www.starship.org.nz/donation.
  2. Winston is still determined to give the money to anyone except The Parliamentary Service. Someone should set up an online petition we can sign saying we will never ever donate to whatever charity accepts his money as it is morally owed to the taxpayer.
  3. Remember United Future still owes around $50,000 also.  E-mail and phone them and ask when they will be paying.
  4. Notwithstanding (2) should the Free Speech Coalition write to Winston saying that we would be happy to accept his money :-)

    “How much of the time you “donate” to paediatric medical research is for your own pecuniary advantage?

    50%, so around 22-5 hours a week is for pecuniary advantage, 50% is unpaid.

    At least that is according to personal department, I am required to work fulltime and I get paid the equivalent of a 50% salary (and a lot less that people I am supposed to be supervising).

    Obviously I see all my time I spent to being some extent to my advantage – but only 50% is paid.

    Clearly that’s an arrangement you’ve struck with your employer.

    But at least you’ve been honest enough to (impliedly) retract your argument about Kiwiblog blowhards being selfish pricks. You simply don’t know how much people donate, and it’s presumptuous to suggest otherwise.
