Labour Has Betrayed The Coast
“It is a total betrayal of the West Coast for Helen Clark to announce that Labour will introduce retrospective legislation to annul Timberlands beech contracts,” the New Zealand First Leader, Rt Hon Winston Peters said today.
“Labour is talking of legislating against jobs,
against a fragile provincial economy, as well as breaching a
fundamental principle of the law of contract.
“It is a betrayal of the West Coast Accord.
“The Labour party was born on the Coast and it will die on the Coast,” concluded Mr Peters.
