Peters and Dunne Betray Voters

Peters and Dunne Betray Voters

"Winston Peters and Peter Dunne's betrayal of voters will cost Kiwi families dear," predicted ACT Leader Rodney Hide today.

"Peters and Dunne have betrayed their voters and delivered the country three more years of Labour. That means big spending government, high taxes, high interest rates, falling education standards, a failing health system, and rising crime.

"Winston Peters and Peter Dunne had it in their power to throw out a politically correct, bossy-boots government. They instead chose to join it," Rodney said.

"Winston Peters said in the campaign that he wouldn't support any government. He said he would not accept the baubles of office. What no one realised he meant that he would spend three years out of the office on junkets overseas.

"Helen Clark has so downgraded our relationship with other countries that now she has put Winston in charge – and in charge outside of cabinet. That's so Winston doesn't have to get up early for 10 o'clock cabinet meetings.

"We now know that a vote for United or New Zealand First was a vote for Helen Clark. Voters won't forget" Rodney Hide concluded.
