Time for a MPWOF?

Winston Peters is visiting a school.
In one class, he asks the students if anyone can give him an example of a "tragedy". One little boy stands up and offers that, "if my best friend who lives next door was playing in the street when a car came along and killed him, that would be a tragedy".
"No," Winston says, "That would be an ACCIDENT."
A girl raises her hand. "If a school bus carrying fifty children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved... that would be a tragedy". "I'm afraid not, "explains Winston, "that is what we would call a GREAT LOSS."
The room is silent, none of the other children volunteer. "What?" asks Winston, "isn't there any one here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"
Finally, a boy in the back raises his hand. In a timid voice, he says: "If an airplane carrying Winston Peters was blown up by a bomb, THAT would be a tragedy".
"Wonderful!" Winston beams. "Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that would be a tragedy?" "Well," says the boy, "because it wouldn't be an accident, and it certainly wouldn't be a great loss!"

Before being named to start for the ABs, before any transfer  becomes binding in sports, before a contract to change ownership for a racehorse for racing or breeding, and as an inherent plank in an employment contract a medical certificate is often required to ensure "fit for purpose".

At the media scrum after the pensioner from NZ First was given his chips by Speaker Carter in the  House, later in the foyer of Parliament a very agitated and profusely sweating "victim" was still vainly attempting without success to get his six shooter out of its holster.

Some of those images suggested  all is not well with the aging nicotine stained, partly pickled pensioner.
His delivery in the house as he made earlier pathetic attempts to deliver on his extravagant claims to end Judith Collins parliamentary career, was incoherent, garbled and unintelligible.
Along with amounting to a big fat zero the whole episode indicated all is not well with the ageing warhorse, once touted as a National party leader.
Blood sugar issues, not uncommon in drinkers, onset neurological issues, lack of sleep, and seriously disrupted body chemistry could all be suspected as primary influences in his rather disturbing demeanor yesterday both as he was asking to be carded then in the sideline interviews following his entirely predictable ejection.

If he believes he can deliver on three and a half years as a possibly very influential participant in our already chaotic MMP system of government, I for one require some evidence of mental, physical and intellectual capability as yesterdays efforts raised far more serious questions as to his fitness rather than any perceptions of unfitness of his target, who as an influential member of National is easily replaceable.
The sartorially splendid yesterdays man on the other hand is New Zealand First, front center and wings, should he fall away, what the largly ignorant and demented bloc of voters are erroneously voting for ceases to exist and all that remains is a decaying carcass of half baked wannabes who would struggle to run a pissup in a brewery.

It is now being claimed through a spokesperson poor old pensioner has the "flu", jeez nobody ever tried that excuse before. As if yesterdays shambolic efforts were a one off.
The irascible old goat, true to form didn't think to make that excuse himself, crikey how long to make up a sign reading, wait for it         "FLU"

Winston is obviously unwell both physically and mentally - probably as a result of blood pressure, onset diabetes tension, exacerbated by drink and smoking.
Seriously, if he wishes to live longer he needs to see a good doctor and "listen". That is difficult for him.
Trying to become a martyr does not become hm.
