    Does Winston Peters know what ravaged means ? Even ravished makes no sense in that context-I hope.

      ravaged = to work havoc; do ruinous damage.
      and I think that’s what he meant when he got up to reply to Gareth Morgan.
      Cos Gareth was pulling No punches when he was talking about Winston.

        Yes, but as ravaged means to cause desolation and physical devastation, it’s hard to see how he could think that it was an appropriate word !!!
