Why?

Written by 

Your canine crusader sees that the former seed salesman and mouthpiece for failed meat industry ginger group MIE is now going to write a book.

Apparently Hyland says his book on the excellence of NZ farming ‘simply has to be written’. According to a publicity spiel about the hitherto unwritten book, the self-proclaimed agribusiness advisor will tour the country for the next year and interview 30 farming families to find out what makes them so successful. Hyland has even managed to cadge a free SUV from Ford to help him get around. However, news of this literary masterpiece has not gained universal acclamation: with one mate of the Hound asking whether the book will come with crayons to help the author fill in the blank pages. Ouch!
