Poor wee chap is obviously desperate for some attention, if this latest incoherent thrashing on the dead TPP is anything to go by – Bill English has saved TPP.
The TPP is on again – and it is thanks to Bill English.
They are not lines that opponents of the trade deal want to hear, but it is the reality they must now deal with.
And that is a foreign policy win for English – and a loss for the opponents of TPP.
In my view, it is not really TPP without the United States. It is the “TPP in name only” or “TPP-lite”. It may soon end up on its deathbed again.
But for now at least, TPP has been saved.
So the TPP that isn’t the TPP has been saved but it hasn’t been saved. OK. Of course the main point of the piece is that the Nat PM is a shiny golden god, but that is always the main point of Gower’s rants.
