Peters celebrates end of political chameleon
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says Peter Dunne’s political career has been self-serving and of little value to the country.
Mr Dunne resigned from Cabinet last week after refusing to release emails to a reporter relating to the leak of a report on the Government Communications Security Bureau.
Mr Peters claims the Ohariu-Belmont MP was the source of the leak, which Mr Dunne denies.
He says it’s a personal tragedy for the MP, but not for the country.
"I did not think Peter Dunne has had a brilliant career or record what so ever. If you want to talk about a chameleon who has been changing his spots every few years and going from one side to the other and sitting in the middle and doing all sorts of things like running policies that only last five minutes before he finds the next one, that's Peter Dunne to a T. I do not think self-serving, egregious behaviour is commendable. I've never thought that and those that think a career as a minister and a long career is success and don't understand what life's about. Life's about some fundamental beliefs and principles and Mr Peter Dunne had very few," Mr Peters says.
