Winston apologises

Stuff reports:

Former deputy prime minister Winston Peters has apologised for comments he made on national television alleging former Mongrel Mob member Harry Tam helped a Covid-positive case breach the Auckland border.

On Friday, Tam, a former senior civil servant who now works with gangs, sent the former deputy prime minister and NZ First leader a legal letter, calling for a public retraction and apology by 5pm on Tuesday.

If Winston hadn’t apologised, he would have lost badly in court and had to admit his highly reliable source was an anonymous facebook post!
