Do Murray and Bill still think we did the right thing?

Murray McCully went rogue at the UN Security Council and signed New Zealand up to support despots, dictators and terrorists against the only democracy in the Middle East.

“Unfortunately, Sativex, the one pharmaceutical-grade product that is available in New Zealand continues to be extortionately priced as big pharma continues to ignore the building resentment, both local and global, to the attitudes these companies take to the sick and vulnerable,” he said.
