OPINION: This old mutt notes that Geoff Reid, an 'environmental activist' - whose activism appears to be limited to surreptitiously creeping around farms in Southland taking photos on the dime of Greenpeace, recently published more of his creepy farm shots.
Recently the Ag Twiterati (those who have far too much time on their hands) were demanding more 'diverse' - that is Māori and women - representation at Fed Farmers one would think competency and ability is more important than what a person's gender or ethnicity is.
Following the recent Primary Industry Conference there were howls of outrage on Twitter about the lack of diversity in Fed Farmers representation.
Problem for the wokesters on social media is that Feds is a membership organisation, where its reps are democratically elected by members.
Are these ticket-clippers on Twitter now suggesting that a quota system must be imposed on a private organisation such as Feds?
