NZ First to oppose Free Trade agreement
It's a First. New Zealand First.
Winston Peters is to vote against New Zealand's biggest foreign policy in ages - the free trade agreement with China - and will oppose it on overseas trips in his role as the Governments Foreign Affairs Minister. Michael Cullen is fine with a Foreign Minister opposing key foreign policy. He shouldn`t be. Peters should resign or be sacked, even if he is a ceremonial Foreign Minister.
Peters is even denying a FTA is foreign policy - preferring to call it trade policy. That's nearly as bad as Michael Cullen voting against the budget, describing it as revenue policy.
Imagine what would happen if National changes its mind and votes against the FTA!
