Peters before the committee

  • September 10th, 2008

Curiously I felt embarassed succumbing to the urge to attend the Peters presentation to the Privileges Committee. I thought it could be like being caught peering at the aftermath of a car crash.

Instead being here has been healthy. There’s no sneaking sympathy. The familiar muddle of bombast, wheedle, fact, wild accusation, evasion, and circumstantial imagination is a curing reminder of how a superb liar can corrupt process and bully authorities into failing to uphold the law, let alone ethical standards.

The process is a good reminder of why slow and deliberate court discipliness protect the truth.

‘fact accusation’?

‘circumstantial imagination’?

Slow and deliberate – thats the way to go!

Understandably hard to remember, when witnessing the downfall of the most destructive New Zealand politician of a generation.
