On TV1 News on 7 October, commenting on the recently signed TPPA, Trade Minister Tim Groser admitted;

“It’s going to take time for people to absorb this, there’ll be things in the detail that even I don’t know about, we had a team of 15 people, it wasn’t just done by Tim Groser for heavens sake.”

There are “things in the detail that even Groser doesn’t know about”?

Is he having us on?

So not only was the entire country in the dark about the contents of the TPPA – but it seems that our esteemed Trade Minister signed us up to an agreement where he was not fully cognisant of the details?
What kind of irresponsible government commits an entire country to an agreement where the finer details are not known? Where even the Trade Minister candidly admits his ignorance of “the details”?

So this is National – the Party of supposedly “responsible economic management”.

Anyone for a new flag? Put an ass on it.
