Dirty water

Written by  The Hound

The Hound understands that Federated Farmers has been cut out of the information loop, for the past year, on the proposed freshwater reforms – driven by well-known farmer hater Environment Minister David Parker.

Apparently, Parker’s Environment Ministry officials claim, with no actual proof, that the Feds leaked confidential information about the reforms back in May 2019 – which the Fed’s strenuously deny – and have refused since then to give the farmer lobby any details or updates on the reforms.

Despite the petty actions by MfE, your old mate is told other supposed farmer organisations such as Beef+Lamb, Dairy NZ and the FLG (known as the Fawners and Lickers of Government) have been good quislings and acquiesced to the Government and officials on its proposed draconian rules that will be foisted on the farming sector.
