Bull’s-wool

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: A mate of the Hound’s recently contacted this old mutt to report his deep concerns that AgResearch’s fancy new $45 million building at Lincoln did not back our wool sector.

There was a rumour going round that AgResearch’s new building had installed synthetic carpets. However, after some sniffing around by yours truly, the Hound can confirm that this claim is, indeed, just a rumour and any carpets in the building are indeed woollen.

Meanwhile, the Hound suggests backing the petition currently in front of Parliament by Amy Blaikie, asking that: ‘New Zealand wool products used in public-funded buildings and KiwiBuild homes.’

Speaking of which – Who was it that promised before the last election that one of his coalition bottom lines would include that all new government buildings must have wool carpets? More bull’s-wool from Winston, methinks!
