Sledge of the Day

Winston Peters takes out Sledge of the Day for this gem:

Winston Peters didn’t miss a beat when a TV presenter admitted he was charming, but that she wouldn’t vote for him.

The NZ First leader spoke to Paul Henry on TV3 about the flag referendum and afterwards Henry quizzed the show’s social media presenter Charlotte Ryan about her thoughts on Peters.

“I’m quite a fan actually: he’s charming, Winston you’re charismatic,” Ryan said.

“That’s your problem: you’re charming, you’re charismatic, but Charlotte still wouldn’t vote for you,” Henry told Peters.   Winston responded as only Winston could, ignoring Ryan’s earlier compliments.

“They tell me that Charlotte’s not so bright.”

Ryan was rightly affronted, indignantly saying, “Winston! You’re off my Christmas card list.”

Who cares about Christmas card lists in March? I’ve worked hard to reduce my Christmas cards to zero.

Winston is the master at sledging, which is almost a lost art in these brown bread, vanilla MMP times where politicians are afraid to upset people.
