Prime Minister John Key on the TPP: “We’ve never ever been sued.”

Prime Minister John Key told TV One’s Q+A programme that “there is genuinely some misinformation, so the, you know, ‘We’ll lose our sovereignty; the New Zealand Government will get sued,’ I mean, they’re great statements to make, but they’re fundamentally not true.”

And in response to Corin Dann’s question “you can’t guarantee, though, can you, that we won’t be sued by a big US corporation?”
The Prime Minister said, “well we’ve had it in four FTAs now, we’ve never ever been sued. New Zealand has never had a case taken against us in investor-state.”

Here’s the link to the full interview – Corin also asked the Prime Minister about Russia, Syria and the issue of Kiwis being detained in Australia awaiting deportation.
