Suicide, no-vote puller but it needs to be addressed says Peters
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says they're determined to address the staggering rate of suicide and champion the issue on the campaign trail all the way to the elections in spite of it being a no-vote puller.
High profile celebrity Mike King was invited to speak at a New Zealand First rally in Auckland over the weekend and his message resonated with Party members.
Winston Peters says serious funding needs to be given to prevention programmes and he's also calling for a targeted goal of reducing the total suicide rate
" And Mike Kings message was very similar we were seriously grateful to him because it sets up for a far better response in the closing weeks of this campaign to that critical issue. I don't think there's any votes in it but we need fix our country up", says NZ First leader Winston Peters
