Your old mate has no time for the multinational, tax dodging, political activist group Greenpeace, which spends most of its time and funds in this country telling half-truths and inaccuracies and smearing the farming sector.

So, it was good to see it get a good kicking when one of its overpaid, spin doctors took to social media – during the recent flooding of Edgecumbe – to claim this was all down to climate change and insinuating the people impacted by the water inundation had brought it on themselves. Reaction was swift with many critics calling on the group to pull its head in and stop trying to make gains out of other people’s miseries. The Hound suggests it would be good to see the public react similarly when Greenpeace makes its fabrications against farmers.
