Whether by accident or design, Helen Clark told us this morning on Breakfast what she thinks of us, and especially our children. She told Paul Henry:
"I don't have children, but thank God most people do , and they're going to be looking after me in my old age."
That must rate as one of the most outrageous things that our PM has ever said, so pass it on. She is a multi-millionaire, has a gold-plated superannuation scheme, and will probably leave Parliament and New Zealand to a high-paying job elsewhere. And yet she expects "other people's" children to support her in her retirement! I have not raised my children to support Helen Clark or her ilk. I am trying to ensure that my kids will not even have to support Mrs Inventory and me. Yet Helen Clark, a socialist until the bitter end, has a different mentality. Which explains a lot, doesn't it!
