A new TransPacificTradeTreaty?

Apparently the backless, balless, spineless PM–imitator has signed us up to a FTA with fucking Peru? Cost of cocaine too high Malcolm? Or do you want to bring in more Orange Juice concentrate to kill more of the local citrus industry?

You want another TPTT? What the FUCK is in that, jellyfish? Oh, you won’t tell us? You want to root the next Labor govt? That is the spineless jellyfish act we expect from you and FD!
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!

This shit just gets further and further out of hand. It is an article of faith among these fuckwits that all trade is always and ever 100% benefical - how many decades of failure does it take for the facts to sink in?

Canada was a no–show at the 11 member TPP so that is off the table for now.

The original TPP had little in it promoting trade, lots to do with protecting vested interests: copyright would be militantly enforced and so on.

Dunno what the new one had in it, more of the same I guess?
