Sorry Winston, you are wrong on this one

Winston Peters wants to commit Aucklander’s tax money to Christchurch Anglicans.

New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has pledged to get a project to rebuild Christ Church Cathedral started after the election, if no action is taken before then.

“The government has the ball in its hands. It has been sitting there for a long time,” Peters said in a speech at Cathedral Square today.

“It’s time to play ball. And you have my personal undertaking that if the government doesn’t start now we will start this project after the next election.”

Peters said Christchurch locals were right to call the building “our Cathedral”, given the number of events held there, including many non-religious events.

It isn’t my cathedral, it isn’t anyone’s cathedral other than Anglicans. They want it torn down and a bunch of bludgers want to rebuild it.

It doesn’t matter what the property owners want, politicians like Jim Anderton and Winston Peters want to spend our money on rebuilding something the property owner doesn’t even want.

“It has been six years. We know the cathedral is legally owned by the Anglican Church. So, some heat must go there for its inability to resolve its own problem,” Peters said.

Why? They made a decision…knock it down but some wankers didn’t like that so the problems stem from the wankers and their constant court action.

Winston is wrong on this.
