Will NZ support nuclear proliferation?

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 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 in office. Labour would probably be denouncing the Government for its lust for 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?
