Former Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters says the Government’s gone back on its word at Pike River and he’s fighting to prove it in court.
Newshub Nation has obtained an affidavit from Peters backing 20 Pike River families who say the Government hasn’t delivered on what was promised. …
Minister Responsible for Pike River Re-entry Andrew Little says exploring 2.4km into the tunnel known as the drift is what was promised and what was delivered. Peters calls it “one of the most disappointing things” he’s ever seen in politics and is adamant Little is wrong.
“That’s preposterous – there’s no way we’d spend that sort of money just to recover the drift.”
So who do you believe – Winston or Little?
