Grey Power's strength as an interest group has much to do with the fact that its members form a large voting bloc – of which politicians are well aware – and often have more time to devote to pursuing issues and grievances than people working full-time. At this 2008 Grey Power meeting in Auckland, member George Childs questions Minister for Senior Citizens Ruth Dyson about tax matters.
