Rt. Hon Winston Peters will not be standing for an electorate seat. The New Zealand First Board has decided he should concentrate his efforts on the party vote throughout the country.

It is not possible for Mr. Peters to concentrate on an electorate while campaigning the length and breadth of New Zealand, nor is it fair for an electorate to have an absentee candidate.

However New Zealand First has excellent candidates in many electorates and the Board has every confidence in them.

Gordon Campbell:
On Pharmac, Gough Whitlam And Sleater-Kinney

Ridiculous reported comments on RNZ this morning by Trade Minister Tim Groser, as he sought to dampen down concerns about the leaked draft of the IP chapter of ther Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations. According to Groser, ‘extreme’ positions are common at the outset of negotiations, and these get whittled down over the course of negotiations. Fine.

Except that we’re not at the outset of these negotiations. The outset was six years ago, and negotiators were hoping to have some sort of ‘framework’ deal finished in time for the APEC meeting in a few weeks’ time. These ‘extreme’ positions are what we’ve reached near the intended end of the negotiations.

Still, Groser did promise that the cost of medicines would not rise as a result of the TPP trade deal. Great. But this is not what politicians in other countries are saying. More>>
