Hide taking Peters to Privileges Committee

Rodney Hide is taking a complaint over Winston Peters to parliament’s Privileges Committee.

Kathryn Ryan has just compeleted an interview with both men on the issue. It’s not on-line yet but one of the interesting statements from Peters was something to the effect he took his own advice because he’s a lawyer.

That reminds me of the truism: a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.

Update: the interview is now on line here.

  1. hp: The most interesting moment for me was when Kathryn Ryan called Peters’ bluff and said she would like to give him the opportunity to share his legal advice about why the money donated had nothing to do with him (IIRC). He backed away at high speed and said he did not have to prove anything. It was a “gotcha” moment as far as I could tell.
