So sorry Sir Owen is so unwell...he has always been such a generous man and taken a lot of unkindness from some because of who he is....I see him as a man with a golden heart and a great love of the less fortunate in New Zealand. Go well Sir Glenn and enjoy the rest of your life....some of us can see past those that dont appreciate what you have done for NZ . I have not benefited from you personally but I say thankyou for those that have.

Please dont give it to politics, give it to our homeless and help them into homes with their children. Do it now when it will matter so you can see the benefits. Give it to an organisation that won't eat it up in their admin costs, make it so it has to go directly to the people you want to help.

Good. Children who inherit lots of money often turn out to be parasitic weaklings, unable to contribute to society. We really should bring back proper inheritance taxes.

A good kiwi bloke. Happiness is sound health. Wish Owen respite from illness to have an enjoyable 2018 of travel, some of those places most of us dream of visiting.
