His main purpose in Malaysia was talks over another free trade agreement proposed in 2012, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership involving the ASEAN members and six other countries.
“I think of it crudely as like TPP without the US, but with China,” Tim Groser said.
Nobody wants to be an extremist. Most of us just want to go along to get along and live a peaceful, contented life. Preferably with a roof over our heads, food, a job and decent healthcare.
To be called an extremist or holding extremist views is to be banned to the periphery of society. It’s were the “terrorists”, the loners, the losers, the scary ones live.
For Tim Groser to call those of us who question the secrecy surrounding the TPP and who want to know what is in the contract the government seems so hell bend on signing on our behalf, extreme is disingenuous, anti-democratic and dangerous.
The polls suggest that 97% of New Zealanders are opposed to signing the TPPA.
In my view that makes the 3% in favour the extremists. The 1% of the worlds wealthiest who are lobbying for the TPP are the ones acting solely in their own corporate interest and the agenda they are pursuing is the worrying “extremist” factor. Tim Groser and his 11 colleagues are the ones enabling these corporate extremist monsters supported by a fraudulent debt based and collapsing finance industry. Tim Groser is the extremist here!
As the 97% who want transparency and to be able to read the TPPA contract before we permit our representatives to sign the agreement, we are the prudent, middle of the road ones, wanting to make sure this country and it’s inhabitants are safe from corporate raids, looting and legal action against us and our government.
