Ralston Thinks Peters Should Resign Or Be Fired

Good analysis by Bill Ralston of NZ First's motivation in opposing the China FTA in today's HOS. It concludes:

If Winston Peters genuinely believes this Government is so severely damaging the New Zealand interests and our economy with this deal, he should resign as Foreign Minister.
If he does not, Clark should fire him because he is so obviously a liability to the course this Government wishes to set with our fourth-biggest trading partner and an emerging world superpower.

And Key could always summon the gumption to say Peters will never get such a responsible position under his premiership.
