Forced donation to telethon

So even if you had decided not to support the weekend's telethon because you prefer to support other causes, because you believe that more handouts only create more dependency, that kind Mr Key decided he would do it for you.

One can only hope that there are some checks and balances round that 'donation' and it isn't going to line the trust staffs pockets (who last year took 30% of the 1.5 million the trust raised in salaries). Not impressed with 'our' donation either!

Just shocking!

People should be able to decide for themselves whether to chip in to Telethon.

No doubt Mr Key's coalition partner will be 'carpeting' him about it and letting him know in no uncertain terms that...

oh..ummmmm...hang on...

*wink*

It was a pathetic Telethon, just a mere shadow of what they used to be, and the country really was not interested at all. It's all about marketing and greed now rather then genuine charities and goodwill. Really sad.
