A breath of fresh air

Such sour grapes were conveyed by correspondents R Paterson and A Bourne (The Weekend Sun, November 3) who are already pulling the government to pieces when it's only been in power a week. And the National Party leader and his former ministers are still going on about how they got the most votes so should be running the country. I would suggest they all take deep breaths and sit back and wait a while before they launch their attacks. Most of us are welcoming the vigour and new direction of a changed government that has hit the country running. I've never in my life voted Labour, but I see the new three-party government as a breath of fresh air that deserves a chance to tackle the serious issues that the previous government neglected until some of them reached crisis point. Go for it, Jacinda, Winston, and your ministers.

M Guy, Otumoetai.


TPP not signed

As usual Captain Sensible, you cannot get your facts right. Labour has not signed the TPP today or any day so far - the agreement is still under discussion and Labour has promised it will go through a vote in parliament.

time flies

Labour said they would never sign the TPP in a million years. They signed today. Time flies eh?!
