The editor

Sunday Star Times

From a sound-bite aired on  TV1 News on 7 October,  Annette King criticised the recently-agreed TPPA for denying New Zealand the right to choose it’s own destiny with regards to land and house ownership. She said that as a future Labour-led government;

“We retain the right under any trade deal to put the sovereignty of New Zealand first.”

Those are powerful words.

Question is; will a Labour-led government exercise that right?

After Helen Clark’s recent disappointing performance, I am not reassured.
