$50m hospital donation sparks political debate online

The internet has taken a moment to thank property developer Mark Dunajtschik after he announced he will pay for a $50 million children's hospital to Wellington.

Twitter users labelled him a legend and one person suggested he be named New Zealander of the Year.

However, some people also used the announcement as a chance to fly their political flag.

Jenna Raeburn tweeted how she found it interesting that Labour voters couldn't cope with the concept of private charity.

However, the left were quick to quip back.

Social media presenter Shannon Redstall spoke to Eric Young about this and more.
