Is It On, Or Is It Not?

Total confusion reigns as of this moment on the TPP.

After Canada's Trudeau pulled the plug late yesterday, Fox News is reporting that a is it all on again (as at 2.40pm), with Canada "back at the table." I cannot find this endorsed anywhere else, let alone the NZH.

I have no idea - Fox is adamant as you will see, but doubt seems to remain as to whether it is exactly the same agreement that was on the table last evening. Perhaps we will get clarification later this evening. The slant on the Fox article is related to the withdrawal of Trump, which is of course, ancient history.

The new title is a bit of a worry - sometimers such devices are used to disguise to the true nature of the document:

"Ministers are pleased to announce that they have agreed on the core elements of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership," the 11 nations said in a statement."
