Fascinating to see the little man on TV lording over the demise of the TPPA with the quite inane comment that while Labour was all in favour of free trade it would never ever commit to a deal that disadvantaged New Zealand workers.
Little taking crap in sound bites. In negotiating a free trade agreement it is axiomatic that you have to give away something in order to achieve something ... hopefully a lot. That for us was the essence of the TPPA.
So Labour, in negotiating the FTA with China back in April 2008, didn't stuff our lower end garment industry and the Pope is a Protestant. In talking crap Little craps on his own. One can understand why he wimped out from contesting the Miramar seat.
