Stop the World: Winston Peters is upset!

winstonno

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.

“Unfortunate”?

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.

    Good to know, even Whale Oil has started to acknowledge the possibility of a grand coalition of Labourers-Toxic Greens-Winston First-Horny Hone. Now that we have accepted reality, let us move on towards a bright future folks. Welcome to land of Sheep.

  • This is not good. Up until now, no party accepted the proxy of the weatherman, which means that unless he physically turned up, his vote was not counted. Now however, David Clark’s stupid long weekend bill will pass. Would have been a tie (which means a loss) otherwise.

    Forget Horan, he’s just a side show who couldn’t pick a winner and got Mum to pay for it. How much longer can Andrew Williams last with out doing something bizarre?

    To hear Nickers Norman on the radio this morning.He is from the mcgillycuddy serious joke” green party”.He and his wee fat frog co leader Turei have been outed, putting in an interest to buy shares in Mighty River Power.They wont admit it,but they found such a great investment in the power company ,it couldn’t be resisted.Now he has been outed ,he is denying he has registered. an interest.If he is telling the truth ,the joke runs concurrent with Turei’s joke party,maybe the joke of the year.

    In Hone’s case shouldn’t it be a poxy vote?

  • Apolonia

    This is a matter of integrity
    Where’s the $158,000 Winston?

    How ironic that a bunch of unelected list MPs are “only interested in democracy”.

    The Greens are only interested in Democracy?

    Fucking MMP omnishambles. After the Alamein Kopu debacle we thought this shit had been put to bed but NOOOOOOOO…the troughers left an expiry clause in there in case it ever happened to one of them….right Winston?
    I have no truck with this. Horan is not an elected MP and he has no mandate to be in parliament. The seat and vote should by rights belong to NZ first as much as I want to choke saying it.
    MMP is a F%$^&Kn disgrace!
