The Hound had a bit of a giggle at the sight of the party’s supposed mates giving it a serve over the way it gets things so wrong.

The peak body for the organics sector in NZ – Organics Aotearoa New Zealand (OANZ)— has taken the Green Party to task over its ‘misrepresentation’ of the 2016 NZ Organic Market Report, saying this “is not acceptable”. OANZ chair Doug Voss says the Greens had “inaccurately re-presented the report’s findings”. Voss issued a media release responding to the Greens’ utterances about the report; Voss ticked off the Greens for their “many factual errors, in particular [their] portrayal of the New Zealand organics sector as going backwards compared to other countries when in fact it was growing strongly”. Who needs enemies when you’ve got friends like this?
