In Orewa today, the New Zealand First leader emphasised the party's role in stopping a Government deal over the South Auckland land.
Peters says New Zealand First talked with Labour about not having "politically correct policies" that would undermine the Government.
He says that's exactly what a deal over Ihumatao would have done - and it began to show when the Prime Minister intervened with building starting on the land.
Peters told Heather du Plessis-Allan New Zealand First was never consulted about the intervention, which he says was a dramatic and terrible decision.
"Fletcher's had a right to be able to in a free contractual world, to get on with their project, and they were being stopped by the government."
