ACT Finance spokesman Rodney Hide said today that it was no surprise Winston Peters had backed out of supporting Max Bradford on his bungled electricity reforms.
"Winston Peters has proved to the National Party, Parliament and all New Zealanders time and time again that can't be trusted. Winston Peters is a populist without principle.
"Had National stuck to their principles in the first place on the power reforms they wouldn't have found themselves being burnt again today by Winston Peters.
"New Zealanders are sick and tired of Winston's bullying and demands. Prime Minister Shipley should rule out dealing with Winston Peters ever again. That would cause a huge sigh of relief right around the country," said Rodney Hide.
