The Herald reports:
Labour’s Kelvin Davis and National’s Simon Bridges have described the US practice of separating children from their families at the border as “cruel” and “inhumane”, but Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters refrained from criticising it saying it was a matter for the US itself to decide.
If National was in Government and the Acting PM and Foreign Minister was refusing to criticise what is happening in the US, the Greens and Labour would be condemning the Government for not standing up for children.
But have you heard a single Green MP criticise the Government for not speaking up? Would any of them dare to criticise Winston for refusing to comment? Of course not. They’re gutless.
