Winston has gone.....
Come on, what other explanation can there be for this extraordinary outburst from Winston this morning...
D-day as Peters refuses to stand down
In an unplanned call to Radio New Zealand's Morning Report today Winston Peters said he had evidence to show allegations against him were a lie. "I will talk to the Prime Minister about this matter later today with the concrete evidence that she will know that these allegations are vile, malevolent, malicious and wrong," Peters told Radio NZ. He said unnamed groups were organising a plot against him and that the SFO was part of it. He said if the SFO had talked to him he would have convinced them in five minutes that he was not breaking the law. Challenged on his claims that the SFO was plotting against him, Peters shot back saying what other explanation could there be. "Why would they never ever come and talk to me if they had an intention of coming to talk to me?" He said The Dominion Post was part of the "malevolent planning strategy" and he would not stand down in the face of a "kangaroo court of public opinion, organised by the media in this country and others."
"The public has been most vilely misinformed," he said. Mr Peters said a person both he and Sir Robert Jones respected had looked at where a $25,000 cheque from Sir Robert had gone and advised him he had nothing to worry about. The cheque, intended for NZ First and paid to the mysterious Spencer Trust, has never been declared and is one of the issues the SFO will look into. But Sir Robert today said Mr Peters and NZ First had failed to clear the matter up with him and he still did not know what had happened to his money. A claim by Mr Peters in Parliament that the matter had been cleared up with him was false, he told Radio New Zealand.
This is crazy talk, Winston has proof? Really? The why is Bob Jones saying that the matters are not cleared up?
