I see the fat German criminal is grandstanding again:
Internet millionaire Kim Dotcom has vowed to help fund Team New Zealand’s next America’s Cup campaign.
The team’s future hangs in the balance after Oracle Team USA retained the Cup in San Francisco yesterday, with boss Grant Dalton’s position uncertain and the Government yet to confirm whether it would fund another tilt.
The Government stumped up $36 million for the latest campaign, but Prime Minister John Key yesterday said decisions were yet to be made about whether it would help again.¬†
However, he indicated it was likely, and hoped to discuss whether another campaign was possible.
Internet entrepreneur Dotcom, whose relationship with Mr Key has been tense since the GCSB spying revelations, today said he would back Team NZ if the Government did not.
The Mega founder said on Twitter: “Prime Minister John Key says no more funding for Team NZ? I say #Mega will become a Team NZ sponsor & we will win next time. #AmericasCup.”
I love how they call him “internet millionaire”…why not “convicted fraudster”?
They should take his cash and arrange a signing in San Francisco…I wonder if he would go?
