Weak from Winston

NZ First and Winston Peters have said that they will oppose the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill and worse still have taken the cowardly approach and suggested a public referendum to decide the issue.

I have little respect for someone who has had his own marriage, dispensed with it himself now denying others that which he enjoyed once.

New Zealand First will not vote for the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill and wants a public referendum to decide the issue.

Rt Hon Winston Peters says the New Zealand First caucus believes that issues such as this should be decided by trusting the people of New Zealand to decide rather than to leave it to temporarily empowered MPs.

“It should be a binding referendum after opportunity is given for a reasoned debate.

“The wise use of public referenda on such issues has always been New Zealand First’s position,” says Mr Peters.

It also looks like he is whipping his MPs.It is a conscience issue…but then again Winston Peters has never really displayed much of a conscience when it comes to rorting taxpayers or selling policy to donors.

I have an idea for a referendum, since they are dead keen on them…how about one asking for the introduction of mens testing for the pension and removal of the Gold Card? Those are rights they voted themselves or bribed the electorate with…let’s have a referendum on those shall we?
