Drunk or asleep or both?

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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
