Poacher/gamekeeper

Written by 

The recent announcement by Silver Fern Farms that Richard Young is the new chairman of the meat co-operative got this old mutt thinking this is a true case of ‘poacher turned gamekeeper’.

According to the Hound’s recollection, Young first burst onto the scene as the leader of meat industry meat sector ginger group MIE and then got himself elected to the board of SFF as a representative of this group.

However, much to the disappointment and criticism of his former MIE mates, Young seemed to quickly become inculcated by the SFF board and towed the company line and not MIE’s.

Your old mate reckons there will be much gnashing of teeth about Young’s promotion by whatever is left of the MIE rabble.
