Winston gets Red-Carded

In an effort to make political capital over the McNee killing, Winston Peters has gotten himself named in parliament. Since this is his second naming in the current session, he is grounded for a week.

Hopefully Winston will use his free time productively, like thinking of a rational explanation for what went on. As it is, his feverished imagination has not only lead him to declare that the Police Minister, George Hawkins, is involved in a cover-up (which is ludicrous because George wouldn't know where to start) but also to declare that the Speaker, Jonathan Hunt, is colluding in the matter!

More realistically, Winston will just use his free time at Courtney Place getting drunk and arguing over the fare with immigrant taxi-drivers.
