Acting PM Winston Peters challenges Australia on Kiwi teen’s detention
Acting Prime Minister Winston Peters has challenged the Australian Government to meet the obligations of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child over the detention of a 17-year-old New Zealander under its deportation policy.

The 17-year-old has been held in a Melbourne immigration detention centre for the past three months and is the first youth detained under hardline migration rules.

A decision on his visa status is expected soon.

He is being held under a section of the Migration Act that provides for deportation where someone on a visa is deemed a potential risk to the community.

That weird feeling you are experiencing over Winston Peters mauling Australia is the surprise of a NZ Prime Minister finally standing up for us.

The disgusting way NZ is treated by Australia should be challenged constantly. This was how much John used to challenge Australia…

…it is righteous that Australia be challenged on their appalling treatment of our citizens and I’m glad to have a Prime Minister who is prepared to do that.

Good one Winston.

    Winston Peters is brilliant…how different NZ would be if he had been Prime Minister over the last 20 years

    I’ve spent the last 20 years mocking Winston Peters but I think he may be right – the media really was out to get him. I like to think I’m wise to media distortions but I think I got taken in this time.

    It shouldn’t be surprising, The establishment must have felt very betrayed by having a prominent member of the National Party leave the way he did and the media – as we all know – is more than happy to represent the needs of the establishment.

    Oh , for fucks sake.
    Of course peters can be seen to ‘maul’ AU. Historically, bent Kiwi’s did deals with AU and made billions ( Holyoak anyone? To name but one crooked fuck. Wattie! There’s another one.) Now? They’ve made their fortunes.They’re off. Gone, with our money and leaving behind them our primary industry in ragged tatters. Big tough little winny can come out of the wardrobe all-a-puff now that the swindles have been done, like the gutless dog that barks after the bear’s run off.
    The one thing we’ve always had in common with AU is that we must compete for the same agrarian markets in the northern hemisphere. So, why were/are we so closely tethered to AU’s apron strings again??
    Here’s a sign that I might be going/gone crazy?
    Was that kid held because AU and NZ needed a popular and public reason to cause a parting of the ways between two countries who make, do and sell the same things ,more or less, as we do to hide the historic aspirations of old crooks?

    One big meh from me, I’m sorry. I’m not sorry.

    Some in New Zealand attempted to crucify Chris Hipkins for ‘interfering in Australian politics’ last year.

    For some reason the crazies who went crazy at that time have been quiet this time around with Winston Peters’ comments. Mind you the other time was before the election.

    Recent outrage about Trump’s child separation antics with immigrants.
    It wasn’t that long ago that Australia separated Aborigine children from their parents.
