"And after all the state assets were sold, the new foreign owners lived happily ever after..." "AAAAUGH!" "Bill, what the hell are you doing - trying to give him nightmares?!" 25 September, 2007.

Reference Number: DCDL-0004039

Deputy Leader of the National Party, Bill English reads a book entitled 'Grim Fairy Tales' to a patient lying in a hospital bed. The story is about selling state assets to foreign owners and it is terrifying the patient. Leader of the National Party, John Key peers round the cutain that surrounds the bed and reprimands Bill English for giving the patient nightmares. Refers to the fact that less than 14% of all the profit earned by foreigners from their New Zealand investments is reinvested in New Zealand. The rest is taken overseas in the form of dividends. Information from Greens website and quotes Russel Norman.
