*****


A sommelier in Wellington signed up his son as the 500,000 Kiwi Saver this afternoon at the ninth floor of the Beehive. Jules Van Cruysen, who is a Labour Party supporter but not presently a card carrying member, was happy to put down the plonk and complete the signing under the gaze of the Prime Minister Helen Clark and Finance Minister Dr Michael Cullen.

Mr Van Crysen explained that the reason he signed his son Remy up was in the hope that it would assist him to do things the family cannot currently do - such as purchase a house.
