Mr Farmer man wins again
Labour wins crucial vote on emissions trading plan
Labour is still waiting for New Zealand First to confirm its support for its flagship emissions trading scheme, but yesterday it won the crucial votes of the Greens. Winston Peters' party is expected to follow suit shortly. The Greens agonised over whether to back the major climate change policy at yesterday's caucus meeting and after a frank exchange of views the party's six MPs agreed to say "yes" to Labour. The outcome was expected, although the Greens feel it is unfair that the agriculture sector isn't going to be included in the scheme for several years.
And its does piss many Green supporters off that the Agricultural sector has once again managed to get away with polluting NZ for free, but the Farmers have such a strangle hold on the Labour Party’s balls it was a dead rat the vegetarian Greens were forced to swallow, however once Helen gets NZ Firsts vote she may well decide to cut him lose but that would make the election look rushed unless she makes it look like a massive decision of ‘conscience’, that would mean back stabbing Winston, but Labour have shown they are very good at back stabbing anyone and everyone, Winston can’t just be worried by his enemies, he should be very wary of his friends as well.
