It’s Hard to be Winston

Hard on the heels of Winston’s recent disagreements with the media at the APEC Conference, comes his allegations about the New Zealand Herald being treasonous. It appears that a recent Herald editorial poured scorn and derision on Mr Peters recent meeting with United States Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice. Mr Peter’s argument appears to be that the Herald did not print his (and one can only assume the correct) account of the meeting with her. Their incorrect reporting or rather editorial basis against him is, he alleges, treason.

I understand that during war, allegations of Treason could see people being imprisoned for long periods of time or even executed. Winston obviously must be upset that people who say nasty things about him are allowed to go free…it’s just a pity that there is not a war on.

Mr Peters must be more than aware that such a state of affairs would never have happened in Benito Mussolini’s Italy…even during peace time.
