Farmers’ protest rally at Morrinsville ended with Winston Peters being jeered at.
About 600 turned up for the lively rally beside the giant ‘Mega Cow’ statue in Morrinsville – politicians were not allowed to speak but Peters hijacked the stage at the end as the rain started to tip down.
As he held court standing in the rain under the cow – warning them to be just as dubious of National as Labour when it came to water ‘because they’re just as bad as each other – the crowd started to jeer and heckle at him.
Afterwards Scott Smyth bailed him up about whether Peters would allow the proposed water taxes to go ahead if in coalition with Labour.
Peters would not answer and other farmers pitched in demanding to know who he was going to go with.
