Appropriate!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: A mate of your canine crusader cheekily suggests a recent ministerial visit - crowed about by state farmer Landcorp's (or Pāmu as it likes to be known) public relations department - was highly symbolic.

Apparently, Minister for State-Owned Enterprises David Clark joined a number of the poorly-performing government farmer's executives on a weekend visit to Molesworth Station.

While Landcorp's overpaid spin doctors claimed it was a "great opportunity to have conversations about how to open up more of the Reserve to the public whilst still maintaining a thriving farming operation..."

However, the Hound's mate reckons having the most useless and ineffective minister in the current government (remember when the former Health Minister was off riding his mountain bike when Covid hit our shores back in 2020) visiting one of the most useless and ineffective government departments says it all. Touché!
