Reference Number: DCDL-0002284
Minister of Health, Pete Hodgson, is seen as a string puppet dangling from an unseen hand above. The hand is that of Prime Minister, Helen Clark. In the hand of the puppet is a Labour Party pledge card. He asks the public how the party can fund pledge cards in order to keep labour in power so that a perfect health system can be created, if the money is spent on the current treatment of patients. Refers to the crisis over waiting lists for surgery.
