Winston Raymond Peters just can’t help himself. He is so crooked that when he stands up to his full 4’11” height and stretches his crooked little neck he is still crooked and lies like a flatfish.
His must hyped first speech to announce the return of Winston Peters turned out to be a fact free tirade.
The New Zealand Aged Care Association has rubbished figures provided by New Zealand First leader Winston Peters on overseas ownership of rest-homes.
In a speech titled “NZ for Sale” at an RSA in Rangiora, North Canterbury, Mr Peters today railed against privatisation of rest homes.
“Care of the elderly has been internationally privatised and sold off overseas.”
About 75% of 870 New Zealand rest homes were run by foreign companies and last year the Overseas Investment Office approved sales of aged rest care facilities worth $1.5 billion, he said.
But association chief executive Martin Taylor said the figures were completely false.
“The truth is about 4000 out of 34,500 beds are operated by foreign owned companies.”
Over the last year only one retirement village company, which included 335 aged care beds, was sold – for $135 million to Australians, Mr Taylor said.
Soooooo….Instead of New Zealand’s rest homes being sold off and run by evil foreigners to the tune of 75% it turns out that the number is actually just 11%. Instead of facilities worth $1.5 billion being sold off to evil foreigners it turns out that just one company was sold – too Australians – for $135 million.
The figures supplied by Winston Raymond Peters were so wrong they are fraudulent. Which considering the utterer of the figures perhaps isn’t a surprise. But wait….
Offsetting this, the fourth-largest aged care provider Radius has in the past year returned to full New Zealand ownership, so as such foreign ownership of aged care sector has decreased in the last year.
Oh so there isn’t an export of pensioners care to evil foreigners, there is actually an import.
Matthew Hooton was right about Winston Raymond Peters, he is a c*nt. Not only that he is a fraud, a liar, corrupt and a f*ckwit.
However I think he may be onto something, perhaps not as he thinks but it is a good idea nonetheless. Perhaps we could sell off the entire aged care industry off shore on the proviso that the new owners take the “assets” with them offshore. The government could even put on special flights to extradite the greedy old pensioner beneficiaries. In one brilliant idea Winston Raymond Peters has solved the problem of superannuation, aged health care and the bribe of the last election of free bus rides. As soon as you check into a aged care facility your bags are packed and out you go, the more I think of this the more I think Winston Raymond Peters is onto something positive.
