Peters talks up a Southern Zimmer Revolution

A comment on revolution from ‘wikiriwhis business’  at Kiwiblog:

Nigel Farage on “wholesale, violent revolution” in Europe

When people have hope, they protest.

When people lose hope, they riot.

Closer to home:

Time to revolt, Peters says

Southerners should draw on their Scottish heritage and ”start a political revolt” against an economic system that hurts the local economy, New Zealand First leader Winston Peters told an audience in Dunedin last night.

”When are you going to start the revolt?” he asked the more than 50 people who attended the speech, at Age Concern Otago.

He blamed free market economics adhered to by ”dumb people in Wellington” for job cuts at numerous Government-owned entities in the South.

Talking to an Age Concern audience. About starting a political revolt. I wonder how many potential revolutionaries were in that audience.

Peters was obviously trying to tap in to a current concern in Dunedin, but I doubt whether a Southern Zimmer Revolution is likely.
