Franks Worth A Read

Stephen Franks is an interesting person to talk to about scampi. He was on the Parliamentary investigation that Winston eventually nobbled. They put Franks on because they needed a lawyer. Once Winston found out about Franks coming onto the investigation he freaked out. Part off the freaking out and bullying involved some rather harsh words from Peters to Franks. It must therefore be nice to be able to get revenge.

Franks has done his best to reconstruct the dialogue on Friday between the PM and Peters. Some people find it funny. We find it sad. Sad for New Zealand, former beacon of democracy and fair and non-corrupt Government. Take particular note of Franks' portrayal of the Privileges Committee. The link is here.
