Hooton on Peters

Matthew Hooton writes in the SST on “The tragedy of Winston Peters“.

Hooton talks about how Peters had the talent to become Prime Minister, but now is a political joke with “his latest embarrassment being the juxtaposition of him opening a craft house in that vital New Zealand interest of Vanuatu, while our real foreign minister, Phil Goff, was inspecting the troops in East Timor.”

The problem isn’t that Winston can’t be a very good Foreign Minister – it is the absurd notion that one can be a foreign minister not being part of the government. Hooton uses the analogy that it is like saying you are only a little bit pregnant.
