Winston critical of Green - Labour MOU

8:39 am on 8 June 2016

The New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says his party won't compromise on key policies such as immigration and separatism to do a deal with the Greens.

Mr Peters has described the Memorandum of Understanding between Labour and the Greens as worthless.

Speaking on TVNZ's Q and A, Mr Peters said his party had a good relationship with all of the other parties, including the Greens.

But he said his party wouldn't agree to some Green Party policies.

He said in the past the Greens had attacked him as racist for advocating restrictions on immigration, which he said was an issue where he was being proven right.

Mr Peters is also critical of the Greens policy on Treaty issues, which he said would create a parallel state and was separatism.

He said these were policies New Zealand First wouldn't compromise on.
