John Key has announced that he and the National party want to update their foreign policy. Yeah right!
The National Party has done a huge u-turn on foreign policy. Six years ago they condemned the Labour Government for scrapping the RNZAF combat wing which Labour had done for economic reasons more than anything else; the RNZAF has had a long and proud record in combat reaching back to WW2 and the Battle of Britain, for example.
Suddenly they have had a brainwave, they now accept Labour's reasoning behind the decision to scrap the combat wing - New Zealand cannot afford the $200 million annually needed to run a combat wing! What marvellous insight, John Key. Bravo for John. Yeah right!
