    Winston looks like he's either ready to fall asleep on the spot, or fall off the perch altogether. Is Jacinda out-doing him in the whisky drinking?

    Depends how you define "castle". Dictionary definition; "a large fortified residential building" or the more common expression " my home is my castle"

    No it doesn't. Its how Met Tu described her asset. Maybe she was attempting to mislead?

    Which bit is not true ? Nothing to do with any definitions.

    A caller to talkback, in the early hours of the morning, made a very clear claim that we would hear very 'soon" that Winston Peters is sick. For whatever reason, she appeared certain of her facts but would not elaborate. While I wish ill to no man, I wonder at the implications of this, should it be true. Imagine the effect on NZ First? A bit like a legless spider.

    Have you had a look at him lately ? He looks like death warmed up and the last time I heard him speak he was struggling to breathe. That was his announcement of who he was appointing to lead the coalition. Will he last till the end of this term? I wouldn't put money on it.

    Please don't. We still need him to lead the mine's re-entry.

    If he can't breathe properly now, he won't be going down the mine. I know what it feels like. I ran out of puff on a liner in Bali in September and as I write this, I have just filled my chainsaw to go and fell the biggest tree for next winters wood. Seems like the medication is working. Atrial fibrillation its called but knackered is far more descriptive.

    Winston is taking some time out ashamed at himself for making the single most worst decision in NZ Political history.

    Perhaps you need to be more positive: It's his last term in government. There you go, merry Christmas!

    And still not a word from the man himself. It must be close to a record for him - how many days now?
