Stop the World: Winston Peters is upset!


The Greens have upset NZ First by agreeing to cast Brendan Horan’s proxy vote in Parliament.

Mr Horan was expelled from NZ First in December and is staying on as an independent list MP.

NZ First leader Winston Peters says the Green’s decision can “unfortunately” be seen as legitimising Mr Horan’s place in Parliament.

“There is no legitimate place in Parliament for Horan, now or in the future,” Mr Peters said.

“Horan represents no one. For obvious reasons, NZ First doesn’t want him and he should have resigned his list seat.”

Don’t you love how measured Winston is these days?  With the promise of a coalition government next year, he can’t afford to upset his new partners in crime too much.


That’s not the Winston we know and despise.

“We are very disappointed with the actions of the Green Party over this matter and our concerns have been expressed to their co-leader Russel Norman.”

The Greens, who also hold Mana Party leader Hone Harawira’s proxy, say they’re only interested in democracy and MPs should be able to have their votes cast whether or not they’re physically present.

Oooooooh, The Green Taliban are only interested in Democracy!

You know, by defacing election hoardings and using tax payers’ money to fund the collection of signatures to push for a “Citizen Initiated” referendum.

That sort of democracy.
