Legacy driving Peters’ choice
Former Alliance deputy leader Sandra Lee says Winston Peters wants to leave a legacy – to end New Zealand’s adherence to the neo-liberal economics of the past 30 years.
In his speech explaining New Zealand First’s reasons for selecting Labour to lead the next government, Mr Peters said far too many New Zealanders have come to view today’s capitalism, not as their friend, but as their foe.
Ms Lee says that was a shout out to rangatahi, to the poor bringing up families in their cars and to the 293,000 children living below the poverty line.
"Winston ultimately made the call on policy but perhaps more importantly a legacy where he wants to be seen to be doing the right thing by the New Zealand people who have done it hardest under the neo-liberal policy of this National Party over the last three terms," she says.
