Burn!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: This old mutt had to have a giggle at the dig Feds recently made at the Green Party in the run up to this year’s election.

President Andrew Hoggard issued a media release saying Feds “couldn’t agree more with the call from the Green Party that science should guide the policies and decisions of MPs.”

Hoggard added, while the Greens issued the challenge in relation to the recent positive COVID-19 cases in Auckland, he looked forward to the party also applying this principle to issues such as genetic engineering technologies and methane emissions.

Hoggard then went on to criticise the Greens and its coalition partners in government for introducing climate change legislation that has a “non-science based target which will only add extra significant economic costs and undermine the competitiveness of our meat and dairy in the international market.”
