Two items of note from The Hive. First they now allow comments:
I like their rules:
- Keep comments relevant to the post in question
- No speculation about anyone’s sexuality
- No personal attacks allowed unless they are about Winston Peters
They also have a theory to explain why Winston does so well with US Secretary of State Condi Rice.
The strongest argument Armstrong has in defence of Winston staying on as Foreign Minister is Winnie’s relationship with Condi Rice. Does he not realise that this relationship is nothing to do with Winston’s capability in the job. It is purely sexual – platonic we should stress. Winston has for years made women aged 45 and above go weak at the knees. He dresses immaculately and shines his shoes (maybe Armsstrong doesn’t know how women tick, next time we see him we will inspect his shoes). He is also charming. Totally without substance, but he is one of the most polite men left on the planet (his mother did a fantastic job in bringing Winston up). During his political career hundreds of thousands of New Zealand women have lusted after Winston. Condi is one of his newer converts. To make the relationship more complete all Winston has to do is stare a little too long at Condi’s well exposed legs and high heels and he has her as putty in his hands. Well done, Winston, you have pulled another one. But is this good reason for him to stay on as Foreign Minister? Couldn’t boy wonder and now poet extraordinaire David Cunliffe be equally charming?
