Laws Lives Dangerously

Michael Laws' column in the SST is interesting on two levels. First, he seems rather keen to shut down investigation in to Winston Peters' finances. Second he suggests that in his day the Young Nats attracted "desperate young women" - "Sloan Ranger-types that you could tempt with cheap champagne". We know a couple of Michael's conquests from Young Nat days (there were so many he kept a book with interesting recollections of the experiences - which didn't seem to be too onanist from the accounts we have received - facts like did not kiss..) and would certainly not want to tangle with them. Maybe he takes comfort from the fact that the two we are thinking off are now safely offshore. But they do visit from time to time Michael, take care.
