Grow A Pair, Winston.
Nats are calling on Winston Peters to grow a pair and sack
Richard Prosser for his racist attack on the Islamic
community and refusing to apologise for doing so.
“Richard Prosser has attacked a sector of the
community; and shamelessly defended this bitter and nasty
attack – and Winston Peters is doing nothing about it"
says Young Nats President, Sean Topham.
Prosser took no responsibility for this attack; instead
hiding behind a weasely-worded press release issued by
Winston Peters, which had no apology.
record Winston Peters and NZ First have racked up since
their party’s formation is a pitiful contribution to
politics and must stop.”
“We cannot stand by and
let Winston Peters and NZ First, beacons of racism and
corruption, get away with this disgusting behaviour.”
Richard Prosser’s comments show that racism and
bigotry is alive and well in NZ First.

Gordon Campbell: On First Time Voting (Greens)

You could say that I like the cut of the Greens’ jib. More>>
