Good call

Written by 

The Hound was delighted to see outgoing Feds dairy head and new national vice-president Andrew Hoggard have a crack at multinational, tax-dodging, political activist lobby Greenpeace.

He criticised its recent smart-arse Twitter campaign against dairying and its attack on DairyNZ board member Ben Allomes for talking about school bullying of dairy farmers’ children simply because of their parents’ occupation. Hoggard says he’d invited Greenpeace members to visit his farm to see the issues he faces and discuss them, but they never took up his offer. “To me Greenpeace seems to exist for one reason only – to raise funds to provide employment for the people employed in it and provide them with trips to Italy so they can tweet from Rome.” Yip, couldn’t agree more!
