James Shaw on Winston Peters' insult

From Morning Report, 6:42 am on 30 July 2020

New Zealand First and the Greens are again firing potshots at each other.

Winston Peters says the Greens can't be trusted after they last night voted in support of repealing the waka jumping legislation - a member's bill put up by National MP David Carter.

If it passes all stages, it would unravel the work done by the Government to ensure MPs who quit or are expelled from their party, are made to leave Parliament.

Political reporter Jo Moir spoke to Green Party co-leader James Shaw and started by asking what he thought of the New Zealand First leader saying his party couldn't be trusted.
