Hypocrisy ok

Written by 

Your canine crusader is usually not a fan of politicians showing as hypocrites.

However, your old mate is happy for PM Ardern, Trade Minister Parker and Justice Minister Little – all of whom marched in the streets in opposition to the TPP less than two years ago – to be shown as utter and total hypocrites in welcoming the legislation passing the CPTPP (new name, same basic deal) through the NZ Parliament last month.

Other hypocrites include Deputy PM Peters and his NZ First cronies who rallied against the trade deal in opposition – talk about lions in opposition and little lambs in government. The Hound suggests the only non-hypocrites in the current coalition are the Greens who still oppose the deal, but they are a bunch of nutjobs so who cares?
