ya gotta admit it…he’s doing quite a good job…
that winston peters…
so far..we’ve seen a reasoned/nuanced response to the election of hamas..
(remember that….?..that was the pre-cartoon tizzy everyone was in..?..remember..?)
then we had a reasoned/nuanced response to the cartoon issue…..
and now we have reports of him and the fiji military commander bainimarana getting on like a house on fire…
(apparantly they had previously met at post-seven festivities..so i guess peters has the ‘blokes’ bloke’ relationship going on with him….not something you could imagine peters’ predecessor in the job..phil goff managing to pull off..eh.?..goff would be more inclined to lecture..you’d think..eh..?..and lecturing was something the aussie foreign minister downer tried on bainimarana…he got a flea in his ear for his troubles..)
btw…that grinding noise you can hear in the background is the sound of goff and clark using their teeth to show their visceral reactions to these successes from their foreign minister..:)
btw..i had occaison to share a word with one of peters’ apparatchiks yesterday….he told me peters is loving the job….!
