Peter Dunne goes on a rant about the Conservative Party, maybe because they are so much more popular than United Future.
United Future’s Peter Dunne has lashed out at the Conservative Party, branding it “seriously extreme and nutty”.
Then he starts putting the boot in.
“Any relationship with the Conservative Party … suggests it’s going to be dogma on one side versus pragmatism on the other side, and I think it’s a pretty unhealthy mix.”
Mr Dunne believed the party had “little tolerance” for alternative views.
“It’s a real moral jihad; it would be smacking, not just resisting any change to the abortion laws, it’s tightening the abortion law, it’s anti-prostitution, you name it, the whole suite of agenda items.”
So Colin Craig responds with a very, very subtle play, making Peter Dunne look like an intolerant bigot against the Conservative Party.
Mr Craig said he was happy to meet Mr Dunne when next in Wellington. “He should probably get to know me and … let’s have informed comment.”
Maybe Peter objects to people who don’t take Tobacco Money.
