Ok, we all know that Winston Peters is a perennial headline chaser but his criticism of John Key for not joining him in urging British voters to vote for Brexit is WSP at his mischievous worst.
One one hand he declares his support for Brexit in a speech to the House of Lords and reaffirms it in an interview today and on the other he criticizes President Obama for 'lecturing' Britons that they should back remaining in the EU. Is Peters so dumb that he can't see a certain inconsistency in his position? ... answer, doesn't care. He knows his adoring fans don't worry about their Messiah's inconsistencies. He's spoken, that's sufficient.
As for his argument that Brexit will open up new trade opportunities for New Zealand and Peters shows yet again he doesn't understand market economics. Europe remains where it is ... 33k from Dover. The 'chunnel' doesn't shut down. Europe will continue to sell to the UK ... subsidies and all. It's British farming and farmers who will suffer. New Zealand will continue to struggle to achieve market access for lamb, beef and dairy products. Not much will change.
Perhaps a more simple reason ... cant, hubris, unreality and ADD are clear signs of aging.
