 Here's a very telling  clip of John Key from last night's TVONE news. (March 31, 2016) 

With regard to the TPPA he says :

Britain's decision yesterday to impose a sugar tax on fizzy drinks will generate a lot of debate over the coming days. I saw John Key for example say on TV ONE news last night that we won't be doing it because "they don't actually work".
