ACT Party Deputy
Winston is not funny
may think it is funny to tell weak racist jokes but it is
not funny to New Zealand's Chinese community" said ACT's
Deputy Leader Kenneth Wang.
"Everytime time Mr Peters
stirs up anti Chinese feeling he gives racists in the
community encouragement to attack Chinese. I have reports
of Chinese women being abused in the street. Young louts
going into Chinese shops to abuse shop keepers. These
statements by Mr Peters are very hurtful to New Zealand's
Mr Winston Peters is well aware that he
is playing the race card. My advice to my fellow New
Zealanders is it is time Mr Peters was retired."

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
