Written by 

Your old mate is not unhappy to hear that the long-time head of Fish & Game – better known in farming circles as Bitch & Complain – is taking his gold watch and stepping down from the hunting and fishing lobby.

Bryce Johnson has been a constant, snivelling critic of farming who, with his Bitch & Complain whiny, wader-wearing mates, coined the phrase ‘dirty dairying’, which more than anything else in NZ has stirred up anti-dairying sentiment and widened the urban/rural divide that threatens to wreck this country. One of this old mutt’s happiest moments was in 2002, when Rural News exposed Johnson’s own less-than-explementary environmental farming practices that had him ‘bitching and complaining’ all the way to the Press Council where his claim was dismissed.
