Zespri The Price NZ Will Have To Pay For WTO Outcome?

This is what Fran O'Sullivan is suggesting in today's HOS.

Goff suggests that the decision by Canada and Australia to remove the export monopolies enjoyed by their wheat boards will increase pressure on New Zealand to abandon its sole remaining single desk exporter.

Might this be an opportunity for Winston? Might he be able to turn this against the Government? Has he not already seen fit as Foreign Minister to oppose the Government's biggest single foreign policy achievement. The WTO outcome might be even bigger for New Zealand. What is wrong with opposing this??
