Coalition govt working as it should - Winston Peters

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 17 September 2018

The National Party is calling the government's attempt to present a united front, a sham. Over the past weeks, there have been open disagreements between New Zealand First and Labour on a range of key policies including the refugee quota and employment law changes. Yesterday they released what they describe as a 'blueprint' for the rest of the term and beyond, in a speech designed to show a united coalition. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says under previous governments coalition agreements have set out specific policies but don't spell out the big picture. Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters talks to Kim Hill.
