Job hunting?

Written by 

Your canine crusader has been doing a bit of surfing on the Twitter machine of late and has noticed quite a bit of action by his good mate John McCarthy, the former front-man of the failed, futile, flopped Meat Industry Excellence (MIE) group.

McCarthy’s Twitter action suggests he is desperate to curry favour with the new government – and perhaps get himself a cushy job on one of its many taxpayer-funded working groups, committees, boards or assemblies while he either brown-noses Government ministers and/or lambasts Opposition MPs. Remember, fellow MIE flunky Mark Patterson is now a NZ First MP – he’s known around Parliament and beyond as the ‘invisible man’ – and Winston Peters (Russia’s last remaining ally in the West) backed MIE’s other major failure in opposing Silver Fern Farm’s joint venture with Shanghai Maling.
