Was gripe on ta­ble?

Weekend Herald - - Viewpoints -

Why ex­actly do Mr Pe­ters’ le­gal ma­noeu­vres dis­credit his post­elec­tion ne­go­ti­a­tions? And why does the Her­ald sug­gest that his ac­tions in­di­cate du­plic­ity around his post­elec­tion ne­go­ti­a­tions with Na­tional? He may well have in­cor­po­rated his gripe into the ne­go­ti­a­tions and re­ceived no sat­is­fac­tion.

The sug­ges­tion that some­one should ig­nore any il­le­gal acts which may have af­fected some out­come or other, in or­der to avoid em­bar­rass­ing im­por­tant peo­ple, goes against the core of our le­gal tra­di­tions.
