Winston Peters claimed earlier in theÂ year that Huka Lodge had be sold…it was a lie.
Winston Peters once told the media and a privileges committee that he’d never taken a donation from Owen Glenn…it was a lie.
Now he is lying again.
Justice Minister Judith Collins has said NZ First leader Winston Peters was wrong when he said one of her people approached him about negotiations after the election if she was National leader.
This evening Peters told TV3 he had “backdoor approaches myself from the Collins’ camp… If you can’t talk to [National leader] John Key after the election, can you talk to her?”
Peters believed the move was an attempt to undermine the prime minister which Collins was likely to be aware of.
“I didn’t think the bag man was coming without her consent,” Peters said.
Collins had previously said she was not responsible for what others did, but came out more strongly this evening.
“Winston Peters is wrong. I have never approached him nor have I asked anyone else to approach him,” she said in a statement.
Winston Peters is stretching credibility to suggest a “loyalist” of Judith Collins would make an approach to a man she deeply despises.
As everyone knows now Judith Collins and I are good friends, I know her mind, and I know that she loathes Winston Peters.
Any claim that a “loyalist” would approach Winston Peters is stupid beyond belief. Â Read more »
