On Tuesday I wrote a short post about the recently signed NZ-China free trade agreement, pointing out that the NZ Herald had declared China to be New Zealand's 'new best friend'. This, I thought, would come as a bit of a shock to Australian readers. Paul Cotton responds:

After 86 years we are still waiting to get our apples into Australia. The Chinese will buy them by the container load. Our new friends don't use non-tariff barriers.
