...The tension rises as Peters takes the pass from Bush on the right wing... 29 July 2005.
Reference Number: DCDL-0000013
The scene is a football field with Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First, followed closely by George Bush, President of the United States, dressed in soccer boots and shorts and chasing a ball labelled 'Islam'. In the top right corner is an insert of a sports commentator describing how the tension is rising as Peters takes the pass from Bush on the right wing. Refers to the stirring of the religion pot that Winston Peters has been doing recently in his suggestions that there are militant and dangerous people among new Islamic immigrants to New Zealand. The suggestion is that he is taking a cue from President Bush who uses the tactic of maintaining a level of anxiety over possible Islamic attacks.
