Our future head of state took $1 million from the bin Laden family

Stuff reports:

The Prince of Wales accepted a £1 million payment (about NZ$1.9m) from the family of Osama bin Laden, The Sunday Times can reveal.

Prince Charles secured the money from Bakr bin Laden, the patriarch of the wealthy Saudi family, and his brother Shafiq. Both men are half-brothers of Osama bin Laden, the founder of al-Qaeda who masterminded the September 11 attacks.

Charles, 73, had a private meeting with Bakr, 76, at Clarence House in London on October 30, 2013, two years after was killed by US special forces in Pakistan.

The future king agreed to the donation despite the initial objections of advisers at Clarence House and the Prince of Wales Charitable Fund (PWCF), where the money was ultimately deposited.

is our future King and Head of State!

Here’s what should happen when the Queen dies.

  1. NZ automatically becomes a republic with the current Governor-General becoming the NZ Head of State, exercising the same powers as they currently do under delegation.
  2. Future Heads of State are appointed by a super-majority of 75% of Parliament for a single five year term. The super-majority will mean no politician is appointed as only someone acceptable to both major parties could be appointed.
  3. In the absence of a Head of State, the Chief Justice acts as Head of State
