Priviledges Comittee

What really maters in the Winston Peters saga.

One of the highest courts in the land - a court with no chance of appeal is going to give a verdict next week on whether Winston peters is most likely guilty of lying to parliament hundreds if not thousands of times blatantly about matters pertaining to electoral fraud.

the bad news is that it will most likely be split along party lines with all the labour ministers protecting him and the national members saying he is guilty. It seems obvious that any fair court would indeed find him guilty based on the evidence that Owen glen has provided - most significant of which the phone records of Ownen glen calling him him calling his lawyer and his lawyer emailing the billionaire asking for the donation (which turned out to be illegal) all within minutes of each other.

If labour instructs its members to vote based on party lines and not on the evidence we have corruption of the highest order in the very system supposed to stop this sort of denigration of our political system. this is something worth taking to the streets about.

In a strangely perverse way, it's good to see other countries are mired with political corruption and no good politicians! Now, if we can just find the ONE COUNTRY with HONEST POLITICIANS, I can get to working on my visa! LOL. :)

Until this episode I thought we had at least a little better than average politicians...

I suppose it was always a stupid idea to have politicians judge if politicians have broken the politicians rules.
