"People are dying to get into the new hospital!" "Excellent!! They can help me with my experiments!" 26 February, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0005598

Shows Prime Minister, Helen Clark, looking like a sinister and mad doctor. She wears a torch on her forehead and holds a saw that is covered in blood. The blood is splattered all over her clothes and also those of Finance Minister, Michael Cullen who tells her that people are dying to get into her new hospital. She is pleased and says that they can help her with her experiments. In the background there is a building with the name 'St Helen's' on it and a queue of spectral-like people with ghosts floating above them; there are also crosses and scythes. Refers to a report highly critical of the number of accidents and medical mishaps in New Zealand's hospitals.
