The Herald reports that Owen Glenn has no longer made his $100 million donation conditional on National winning the election.
Well that's a relief. It seemed odd that Glenn would make such a conditional promise, but clearly he has realised how untoward it may look for him to be promising cash, but only if his favoured team wins.
Glenn may not support the red team, but $100 million is a great wad of money, and if it's to go towards education and youth then I can't see any downside.
I do wish, though, that Glenn and other zillionaires would not continue to tell us mere proles that a particular political party is the medicine we need. The fact that Glenn has made a bucketload of money and lives offshore doesn't make him any more of an authority on what's good for us than anyone else.
Still, we'll take the money, Mr Glenn, since you're offering. Just so long as you don't add any policy-change conditions to your offer.
