Connell for NZ First?

Stuff has an NZPA story which speculates Rakaia MP Brian Connell may stand for NZ First at the next election.

Certainly Winston Peters was going on and on about David Carter’s selection as the Selwyn candidate a lot yesterday. But Peters hates Carter so it wasn’t that surprising.

Considering how strongly Peters has campaigned against people defecting parties, and in fact got a special law passed to allows such MPs to be expelled, the amount of hypocrisy involved if Connell does defect to Peters will be considerable.
