Montecillo Veterans Home and Hospital/Wananga - closing soon. "I won't hold my breath, Bert, but it's worth a try..." "Wasn't room to put America's Cup team!" 10 May, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000745

Three old men, one of whom is in a wheelchair, are trying to prevent their resthome from being closed. They are standing beside a large notice displaying the name of the resthome and one of them has painted out 'Hospital' and painted in the word 'Wananga'. They believe that this ruse might prevent it from closing because closing a Wananga may be seen as politically incorrect; they would have preferred, however, to put 'America's Cup Team' because they think this may carry even more clout. There are references in this cartoon to both the problem of the cost of resthomes and to the problems being faced by the Te Wananga o Aotearoa, New Zealand's largest tertiary education institution.
