Earlier I asked whether or not readers thought Winston Peters was pissed when giving a speech.
There is more evidence that has surfaced as well.
During the GCSB debate Dennis O’Rourke rose and spoke on behalf of NZ First, with Winston Peters sitting right beside him.
This is strange in itself, why would Winston let another member take the limelight using what is clearly, from the wording used, Winston’s own speech…and just before the dinner break too.
As you watch though you get a sense of why…Winston has a few flickers of a grin, then as the speech goes on he takes little naps, you can even see the little head nod that shows when someone who has fallen asleep wakes themselves up. Read more »
Question 9 was very strange yesterday. It appears that Winston Peters was extremely drunk.
We mock those reporters on TV that are doing the live-cross. You know, they get asked to stand in a storm while telling you not to go outside and stand in a storm.
But their job isn’t as easy as it looks. Especially during live broadcasts. Read more »
Especially when they are drunk:
Shanghai penguins, pensions, brown elephants, and cellarellerisation….
Winston is back.
And he’s pissed, either that or his gums have shrunk a bit and his false teeth are too big for his mouth.
What I want to know is what David Farrar has been doing in Shanghai? And is NZ First recruit pensioners from Shanghai now to shore up their thin numbers?
What does a Shanghai Penguin look like?
Yesterday Winston Peters had a ‘mare….it was so bad that he nearly of thrown out of the house.
He tried the same bullshit again today and ended up with the same answers.
It is pretty sad that he has let the drink get to him.
Waikato police say no charges are being laid after a young man woke early today to find a 40-year-old naked woman in his bed trying to take his clothes off.
A spokesman said the man had been drinking at his Melville neighbour’s house before heading home to bed.
“The man has been asleep and unaware of what was going on, with the 40-year-old intoxicated woman in his bed. His mother has heard a noise and went to have a look and found the woman, naked, trying to remove the victim’s clothes.”
The man’s mother called police but no charges are being laid.

A Mayor in New Mexico signed up million dollar plus contracts while intoxicated.
Ever have one of those nights where you wake up with a hangover and $1 million worth of architecture contracts?
No? Martin Resendiz (D), the Mayor of Sunland Park, New Mexico, certainly has.
According to court documents, Resendiz admitted in a June 2010 deposition that he was drunk when he signed nine contracts with the architectural design firm Synthesis+ for $1 million worth of work.
Resendiz said in the deposition that he signed the documents in May or June of 2008 at the local restaurant Ardovino’s after “a good two and a half, three hours” of drinking, Rene Romo of theAlbuquerque Journal reports (sub req).
“Again, this was after two or three hours of us drinking, not exactly the best time to do business, not exactly the best time to read over legal documents, which [Synthesis+ executive Daniel Soltero] did not portray at any time to be legal documents,” Resendiz said, according to a transcript of the deposition.
“The day I signed … I had way too much to drink. It was after 5 p.m. and I signed it (the contracts) and I didn’t know what I was signing,” Resendiz wrote as a response to questions from lawyers for the firm. “My sister had to pick me up.”
I hope Conor Roberts is keeping Len away from the booze. He might sign up contractors for his rail loop.
Clearly though Andrew Williams has been advising Mayor Resendiz.
