Peters – Fact Checked


The current court case instigated by Winston Peters over his pension over payments has enabled a detailed look at what Peters has said and what is stated as fact by MSD staff.

It reveals an interesting pattern as shown in this Newsroom article by Tim Murphy


Journalists and opposing politicians seldom have the opportunity to precisely fact-check – with access to his documents – claims made by Winston Peters. But one government department has done it.

This article needs to be read in full, but suffice it to say Winston Peters does not come out of the article very well in my opinion.

In many respects Peters seems to be channeling Donald Trump.

I suggest that if this article had been by say Greg Sargent in The Washington Post, Peters would rate Four Pinnochios
