Brilliant hit on Winston by English


New Zealand Parliament – 6. Election Advertisingā€”Electoral Commissioners

Rt Hon Winston Peters: I raise a point of order, Madam Speaker. You made a ruling that members could put the name of the party they belong to on their parliamentary boxes. But I do not think it should extend to advertising in the way that the Māori Party members are doing. Their parliamentary boxes have on them ā€œThe Māori Party is 2 mekeā€, which means that they are too much. They cannot do that any more than the National members can have a sign saying they are too inexperienced, or the ACT members can say they are too absent from the House. I think it is inappropriate, because it abuses the rulingā€”

Hon Bill English: New Zealand First is on 2 percent.

Brilliant, Winston poured back into his bottle [of whiskey].
