Winston Peters threatens David Farrar with legal action

Winston Peters threatens David Farrar with legal action

From the final episode of The Slightly Correct Political Show, Winston Peters hinted today at legal action against blogger David Farrar.

Speaking about articles written by Farrar in the final 48 hours of the campaign, Mr. Peters said "you cannot get away with what he tried...and he's [going to] find out".

The ever combative Mr. Peters also referred to Mr. Farrar as a 'Rumplestiltskin' and a 'fool' during the 5 minute chat and pondered "why people bother with him?"

Winston Peters claims there is a law against misleading people in the final two days of an election campaign and asked if he was considering taking it further Peters replied emphatically "no doubt about it!"

To finish off Mr. Peters offered one more nugget towards his intentions of Kiwiblog's Farrar by saying, "what he did under the law was prohibited and he's not going to get away with it."
