B Johnson (The Weekend Sun, November 3) is one of thousands of people totally disillusioned with Winston Peters and the rhetoric he espoused during his political campaigning throughout New Zealand. He has long-claimed that the 'baubles of office' held no place in his political belief system, and that he is only interested in policy that treats all New Zealand citizens as equal. His loud proclamations about the cultural log-jam of the RMA, racially exclusive parliamentary seats, anti-smacking laws, youth crime and the travesty of the Marine and Coastal Area Act were just one big con to maintain his parliamentary salary at the expense of taxpayers. I, personally, am reminded of the 'silver fox', someone whose integrity bends with the wind of self- gratification.
