GREENS NEED TO MAKE LAW, NOT BREAK IT: PETERS
"While Green MPs contemplate lawbreaking we have a simple question for them," New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters said.
"What sort of country would this be if every time citizens disagreed with anything lawful they felt that they could, freely and without restraint, go out and break the law?
"This is not liberty but licence," Mr. Peters said. "MPs are here to make laws, not to break them!"
