Done deal

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: This old mutt continues to be flabbergasted by the sheer audacity and mendacious behaviour of the current inhabitants of the Beehive.

Take for instance the Government's claim that it is still working with local communities and councils on its proposed 3 Waters reforms.

One would think this might actually mean it is still listening to local communities and taking on board their concerns before pressing ahead with any reforms.

Don't be silly!

A recent ad on the Seek website promoted a very highly-paid role for 'Head of Communications, Three Waters Programme'.

The ad said one of the key parts of this new job was to, "advance the Government's reform objectives in a way that supports successful adoption of the reforms..."

It reminds yours truly of that old saying: How can you tell when a politician is lying? Answer - their lips are moving!

OPINION: This old mutt is getting somewhat tired of multi-national, tax-dodging, fund-raising group Greenpeace always given front and centre mainstream media space to coment (i.e. bag) NZ agriculture.

How come?

OPINION: A mate of yours truly is questioning exactly why the Māori ag sector have been given special budget funding by the Government to ramp up their efforts to reduce agricultural emissions.

Why?

OPINION: A mate of your canine crusader's - and a Silver Fern Farms supplier and shareholder - is less than impressed that his meat company is holding a series of upcoming 'farmer forums', where woke, anti-farming commentator Rod Oram will be the MC.

Dirty water

OPINION: The Hound reckons the Government's unpopular and controversial Three Waters reforms is creating plenty of jobs - for bureaucrats and contractors - but not for the local communities who are having their water assets stolen 'co-governed' and controlled by four new mega water entities.
