Quota watch

Written by  The Hound

The Hound understands that Mike Petersen’s time as NZ agriculture’s special trade envoy will soon end.

Your old mate hears that a number of quisling mates of the current administration are lining up for the role, with rumours rife of a very close confidante – described as the favourite bootlicker of the agriculture minister – being Damien O’Connor’s preferred candidate.

So this old mutt suggests that any minority race, wheelchair-bound lesbians keen on international trade should get their CVs in pronto.
