A interesting test is coming of Labour’s rhetoric on nuclear issues? They campaign relentlessly against all things nuclear. They say they want the world to go anti-nuclear.
Yet strangely, they appear to be on the verge of granting an exemption from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to India, due to pressure from the US and India.
Phil Goff himself says this will weaken the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, yet this is under active consideration.
Now imagine if this was a National Government in office. Labour would probably be denouncing the Government for its lust for uranium and demanding we veto any waiver.
So this will be an interesting test for Labour – will its anti-nuclear rhetoric be as hollow as its carbon neutrality rhetoric?Tags: anti-nuclear, India, Labour, nuclear power, Phil Goff, United States
