Finally, some good news for Andrew Little as both Trump and Clinton will kill the TPP

Andrew Little will be happy to learn that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will kill the TPP if elected.

There is something very different happening in the US presidential election. Yes, I realise I have said that pretty much every day since it began. This time I am talking about the issue of free trade. It has tended to be an issue that Republicans support and the Democrats oppose.

This time both of the presumptive candidates say they are against the latest free trade agreement negotiated by the Obama administration, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Donald Trump, in his usual fiery rhetoric, compared it to the raping of America.  

This is bound to further endear him to the female voters he has alienated to an unprecedented level. His statement, though, goes to the core of what his supporters believe. They see a rigged system that was changed to benefit the super-wealthy at their expense.

Raping of America? Is he taking his lines direct from Jane Kelsey?

The reality of the situation is that if the US pulls out from the TPP, then China is sitting there waiting to join in their place.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
