Silence from Labour on latest foreign land sale

Labour has been surprisingly silent on the latest farm sales to a foreign investor:

Hollywood movie mogul James Cameron is coming to live in Wairarapa – and he is bringing his family with him.

The director of blockbuster films Titanic and Avatar has purchased two large plots of land along Western Lake Rd in south Wairarapa, where he is expected to arrive and live later this year.

Records released today from the Overseas Investment Office show that James F Cameron, of Canada, was given consent in December to purchase two separate properties, one 817 hectares and the other nearly 250 hectares.

Why the silence from Labour on the sale of valuable and profitable farm land to foreign investors. Surely they must be consistent and decry this purchase too?

Or is Labour’s threshold for outrage being a Chinee?
