Yes, it sounds like a horror movie title, and in some ways, it is. Winston Peters has addressed the faithful in Rangiora this afternoon. We're not going to dignify his return by rehashing large sections of his speech; in fact we were sorely tempted to ignore it altogether, but let's face it; Winston Peters does have a quality of newsworthiness around him.
If you're a masochist, you can read his speech here; let's just say that whilst it's not "vintage Winston", it's full of headline-grabbers like “NZ For Sale”, and Winstonisms such as "This level of irresponsibility borders on the treasonous." Winston Peters never does things by halves.
Can he return? Frankly, we hope not. Winston Peters has the gift of the gab and a million-dollar smile, but his policies are divisive, and he has proved that, far from being the only honest politician in the land, he is as much a trougher as any. We can think of at least 158,000 reasons not to vote for Winston Peters and New Zealand First!
