Another political post. Sorry. But it is funny.
Morning of Thursday the 28th of August, 2008: The Rt Honourable Winston Peters MP, on the subject of allegedly fraudulent activies with regards to donations to the New Zealand First party, says that the Serious Fraud Office should either lay charges against him or “shut up and go away”.
Afternoon of Thursday the 28th of August, 2008: Grant Liddel, Director of the Serious Fraud Office, announces that they will hold an inquiry into donations to New Zealand first.
On a related note, Peters said this today: “I am prepared to wait on the court steps for them and if they don’t turn up they can go away for ever.”
What does that even mean? It’s not like Peters can book a time to meet with the SFO, and if they don’t show up … that’s it! Game over! He’s off the hook! You had your chance, SFO, and you blew it!
I don’t think it works like that, Winston.
