More on the new TPPA (30 Jan, 2018)

Why have the worst elements of the TPPA only been suspended and not struck out completely?

I think we all know the reason for that.

When the USA comes back to the table (as they have indicated that they may well do), will we find those "suspended" elements reinstated without consultation? Will Kiwis have been duped by a stupid (or cunning) government into accepting the very agreement we all rallied so strongly against?

Is this the old "bait and switch"?

Should we be demanding that Labour not sign this new CPTPP until the "supsended" clauses are actually removed completely?

Does our new PM have the balls to be so bold as to listen to the people and act on their wishes or is the new Labour government just another "we know best" brand of corporate-driven fascism like the last National one was?

Wonder how many years before Japan allows our meat in duty free, 20 at a guess.

Free trade agreements of this ilk are seldom about trade and never "free"
If Labour persist with this, time for Winston and the Greens to withdraw their support?
The "me too" arseholes this side of the Tasman are saying exactly the same things....
