Watch the moment Winston Peters says comparing co-governance to Nazi Germany is appropriate

  • 20/03/2024

New Zealand First leader Winston Peters on Sunday explicitly affirmed that it was appropriate to compare co-governance to Nazi Germany.  

Despite claims since that "there was no mention of co-governance", Peters in his State of the Nation address specifically referred to the "insidious creep of racist co-governance". In comments afterwards, he went on to make similarities between someone's DNA making them superior and Nazi Germany.  

Newshub asked him at a subsequent media conference whether it was appropriate to make a comparison between co-governance and Nazi Germany, to which he replied: "Yes, it is".
