Now Newstalk ZB has said that there will be no cup of tea; check this out:
Phil Goff has ruled out having a cup of tea with New Zealand First leader Winston Peters.
The Labour leader is out pressing the flesh at Auckland's Otara Markets.
He's calling the meeting between the Prime Minister and John Banks, at which John Key endorsed the ACT candidate for Epsom, a complete rort of the system.
He says there's no way he'll be doing anything similar with Winston Peters, who's gaining traction in the polls.
Mr Goff says he'll see where the votes lie after the election, and any meetings will take place then.
Of course there'll ne bo cup of tea; after all, Winston's favourite line, apart from "No", has always been "Wake up and smell the coffee sunshine"!
And in any event, those of us who can remember the merry dance that Winston Peters led Jim Bolger and Helen Clark (before hooking up with the former and jilting the latter) will remember the beverage of choice; any meeting that Phil Goff has with the NZ First leader will be of the Whisky with Winston variety!
