Winston = Le Pen says Clark

Today in the House, Rodney tabled a 2003 BBC interview with Helen Clark, in which she likened Winston Peters to convicted holocaust denier and fascist xenophobe Jean-Marie Le Pen…

“Is there a debate about it in New Zealand? Well of course there is and we have our equivalent of Mr Le Pen in New Zealand and that party scored about 10% of the vote. But I think the fact that it was kept to 10% tells you that by and large Kiwis know that you have to have migration because we’re in an international labour market and a lot of kiwis go and work offshore”

She said that in 2003 yet today in the expediency of holding onto power she tolerates New Zealand’s very own Le Pen and refuses to sack him.
