OPINION: The Hound reckons if farmers in this country think they've got a problem with the small-minded officious bureaucrats imposing unworkable rules with little or no understanding of agricultural realities - it could be worse.
These special types – whose bank balances are usually fuller than former MP Golriz Ghahraman’s bag after visiting a high-end retail store – don’t appear to believe, because they drive a previously highly-subsidised electric car, that they should pay for the roads they drive on.
However, thankfully the new Government is dropping the exemptions that had previously been created for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids from April 1, with money gathered from going towards the maintenance of New Zealand’s roading network.
About bloody time!
How come these sanctimonious types always believe that everyone else but them should pay for their virtual signalling?
