this line signifies that witches r neutral in nature as they r not affected by any side winning or loosing in the battle.

for the witches RIGHT is same as WRONG and WRONG is same as RIGHT.

This is classic Shakespeare in that the words take on more meaning as the play progresses. What seems good (fair) is not....and what would be seen as bad (foul) is not. In other words notthing is as it seems.
