Grow A Pair, Winston


Grow A Pair, Winston.

The Young 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.

Richard Prosser took no responsibility for this attack; instead hiding behind a weasely-worded press release issued by Winston Peters, which had no apology.

“The racist 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.
