Quotes

"Late last year I was advised it was highly likely he had been killed; it took some time to absolutely confirm that through DNA."
"We want to make sure that we get our policies into Parliament and that our voters are not wasting their vote. So we want to get rid of this five percent threshold and we want to do that with alliances with other parties and politicians."
"New Zealand still has a strong sense of community spirit, as we discovered in the immediate aftermath of the Christchurch earthquakes. Even the prime minister says he doesn't want us to be tenants in our own country. From the country becoming nuclear-free to smoke-free legislation, history has shown as long as there's a will, there's a way."
And he told the Mirror: "I'm appalled at the idiocy of any idiot who would publish this far in advance both route and location."
