Winston's flagship turns out to be leaky dinghy

Garth george the grumpy old curmudgeon of the NZ Herald gets into Winston and his pathetic Gold Card for pensioners.

In a single stroke this Gold Card has done more damage to Winston's credibility than any attack by anyone in parliament.

Simply put the golden oldies think the card sucks.

The latest and most outstanding example is the vaunted SuperGold card for us over-65s, two years in gestation after Winston Peters made it a condition of his co-operation with Labour to form a Government after the last election.

Despite all the promises and publicity, it is not worth the plastic it is printed on.

It is less than a joke; what it offers is so pathetic as to be contemptible.[/quote]

And the truly brilliant thing about Winston's crap card is the government get most of the blame despite it being his still born baby.
