NZ First leader Winston Peters is no newbie to politics - and it shows with the silver-tongued combative remarks he's become famous for.
After a combative press conference yesterday in which he spent most of his time attacking media for their reporting, a video has surfaced of some of Peters' finest media moments.
Watch the video below.
It includes him giving broadcaster Paul Henry a dressing down.
"If you want to know how to become a interviewer. Get the facts right first and not going on a fishing expedition," Peters said.
But Henry, who is rarely without a reply, retorted "Winston, let's focus more on you being a good interviewee".
Another video, shared by The Opportunities Party leader Gareth Morgan, showed Peters floundering as he was forced to answer hard questions about the cost of his election promises by Guyon Espiner on RNZ National.
The 72-year-old has been in the game longer than some of his colleagues have been alive after he first reached Parliament in 1978.
One exchange between Peters and a journalist at his press conference yesterday encapsulated the New Zealand First leader's approach to fielding questions.
Asked what his policy priorities would be, Peters picked up on an accent and asked the journalist where he was from.
"Australia," was the reply.
"It shows. Next question please. Don't come and ask a silly question like that." Peters said.
On whether he would hold separate talks with the Greens, Peters said the signal from Labour was they wanted to talk to New Zealand First.
"The team that they sided up with has signalled that they want to talk to us alone...it is the outcome that would matter."
Peters dismissed any prospect of a coalition that would include the Act Party, labelling David Seymour "the most expensive beneficiary in the country".
He wasn't keen to talk about whether he knew who leaked his NZ Super information to the media during the election campaign. Peters has previously pointed the finger at National and there has been speculation that could make a deal harder to strike.
"I'm here to talk about...things to do with coalition formation going on. That's what we had a discussion about in caucus today, and that discussion didn't arise."
