Firstly it must be acknowledge that Winston Peters has got something of a hit. He did break the news that someone who worked for Saddam Hussein has been living in NZ.
The man actually declared this on his immigration forms, but this was overlooked so the Minister only found out due to Peters. That is shocking, and Peters deserves credit for the detective work involved.
However as usual, it seems he has over-stated his case. He claims the man was a Government Minister when it appears he was only a diplomat. We’ll see who was right when the name is revealed today.
But either way a very bad look for the Government.
