Winstons sums it up well

The Herald reports:

Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters has taken aim at Te Pāti Māori, calling them “radical extremists” and accusing them stoking racial division.

Peters was responding to Te Pāti Māori’s promotion of the nationwide protests planned for Budget Day and comments made in recent days by party MPs. He criticised the use of imagery of pistols in the protest’s advertising on social media, saying “make no mistake, racial division is exactly what they want, not unity.”

“They don’t want democracy, they want anarchy,” Peters said.

This is what people need to understand. We have a political party in Parliament that doesn’t want democracy, that doesn’t believe in equality of suffrage. They want to stoke conflict, not resolve it.
