Two ironies

The Herald reports:

Prime Minister John Key says he was invited to the nuclear security summit in Washington because President Barack Obama recognised the importance of New Zealand’s position.

Irony No 1 is that after 25 years of the anti-nuclear law keeping NZ on the outer in Washington, it is now being seen by the US President as a positive.

Irony No 2 is that the beneficiary of Irony No 1 is not the party that introduced the law, but the party that has spent most of the last 25 years trying to work out ways to amend it.

Politics is full of ironies.
