Winston Peter's testimony lacking Baubles


Winston Peters has given his usual bluster and bluff at tonight's Privileges Committee hearing into the Owen Glenn donation scandal.

He has called Owen Glenn a liar, without actually using the word "lie", has provided conflicting information Owen Glenn's testimony yesterday and introduced spin and accusations-all without corroborating evidence.

His demeanor was unusually quiet pensive and bumbling at times. He seemed to have been de-baubled somewhat and may be completely tomorrow as Helen Clark looks set to sack him.

There were however flashes of the old battler in parts of his testimony.

Clark and her Labour party President Mike Williams have also been implicated deeper into the donation scandal. Glenn ascertained yesterday that Mike Williams arranged the donation and that Clark had been aware in December 2005 not February 2008.
