An ode to hypocrisy

Winston Raymond Peters MP

Took great care of his donors so they were hard to see.

Wintson Raymond Peters MP said to his donors, said he,

The rules I expect from the others don’t have to apply to me.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Said he would say what was what

But when the media came to the conference he called

He just said what was actually not.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Said it’s you in the wrong it’s not me

You’re seeing black when it’s patently white,

You’re just biased that’s so plain to see.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Said he’d explain when he saw Helen Clark

He gave her his word and she said that was fine

Even though she was still in the dark.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Has my confidence she said, as by rote

But that was because he held the cards

And she still needed his vote.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Stood in the House and declared

Other parties and MPs had broken the rules,

You can’t be trusted he sneered.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Said he’d explain in the House what he’d done

He just ranted and raved, accused and denied

And straight answers he gave not a one.


Winston Raymond Peters MP

Keeps shouting conspiracy!

He won’t accept that the rest of us know

The problem’s hypocrisy.


Hat Tip and apologies to A.A. Milne.

    And I will likewise link to it.

    BTW – with a few days to run, the “Winston Peters is…” poll at Keeping Stock currently says:

    A crook – 16
    A hypocrite – 10
    Dog-tucker – 11

    Oddly, no-one has yet voted for option 3 – A victim!

    The Court of Public Opinion is speaking!!

    No objection at all, in fact I consider it a compliment.
