The Herald reports:
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has again been forced to defend herself, and her ministers, from attacks from her Deputy Prime Minister, Winston Peters.
In a speech this morning, Peters – also the leader of New Zealand First – took aim at Labour, his coalition partner, and the Greens.
A Government of those two parties in a coalition, Peters said, would be a “nightmare”.
Yet that is the option Winston chose to inflict on us at the last election. He chose to form a Government with them.
And if he is back in Parliament (unlikely), he will choose them again. A vote for NZ First is a vote for Labour and Greens to be in Government.
