Yet you were clearly not listening to the interview Lynne. Ask Whale what he thinks of Winston Peters.

I really enjoyed this story, i completely agree with him, he has a backbone, which is often sadly missing in New Zealand, he has honesty, integrity, intelligence, & has every right to be angry about the hypocracy, we all should be, i know i am, we never recieve what we are promised, the politicians are full of it, & basically they are nothing more than puppets (or is it muppets) anyway, they don't have any real power, as they are told what to do by more powerful people.
There are no politicians right now that you can trust, i would sooner see someone like him in power than the ones we've got who are more interested in their own power & prestige than anything else, & its true that it is always the poorer people who end up paying the price, this damn government or ones before them don't care that people in this country are struggling to feed themselves & pay their bills & are struggling like crazy, or suiciding, but we don't count do we as long as they are all ok, illegally spending tax payers money, & the like, the sooner this governments gone the better for my & everyone i know's liking. If i had my way i would get rid of all politicians with the exception of Winston Peters (as at least he has some intelligence & a backbone, (even if the media has picked up on daft cmments he has made in the past & made him out to be a joke, at least he cares about the elderly & others & exposes lies within government) & start afresh with honest people & thats all Cameron Slater is wanting as should we all, good on you Cameron keep up the good work, i support you fully. Lynne
