Winston Peters' Attack Suggests a Vulnerability
16 JULY 2014
The Taxpayers’ Union is challenging Winston Peters to front up with the precise number of paid up New Zealand First members, after Mr Peters falsely accusedthe Taxpayers’ Union of lacking grass roots support. Taxpayers' Union Executive Director Jordan Williams says:
“There appears to be a pattern of Mr Peters throwing mud at others in areas where he has a vulnerability. We understand that New Zealand First is struggling to stay above the 500 members required for a political party. I am happy to confirm that despite theTaxpayers’ Union being less than a year old, it has substantially more members.”
“Though Mr Peters is not an internet user, we encourage him to visit taxpayers.org.nzand see how easy it is for New Zealanders to join our non-partisan campaign to cut government waste."
“No one doubt’s Mr Peters’ ability as a wordsmith, but his accounting skills have a history of letting him down. We hope that Mr Peters has someone checking NZ First’s membership numbers."
