Even Winston has standards

The Herald reports:

Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters says NZ First turned down a proposal from Advance New Zealand to join forces.

“Advance New Zealand wanted to join New Zealand First but we said no,” Peters said.

He was speaking in Tauranga’s Red Square and responding to a woman holding a poster with images of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and communist symbols.

Asked why the party refused, Peters said the reasons would be “obvious to any sensible, sane, rational person”.

Not a hard choice is it. One co-leader is before the courts facing charges from the Serious Fraud Office, and the other co-leader is the sort of conspiracy theorist who probably thinks the moon landing was faked.
