Stop it!

Written by  The Hound

Speaking of virtue-signaling trite, the Hound notes that the taxpayer’s financial millstone – known as Landcorp or Pamu – has begun the year by trumpeting another one of its pointless PR exercises that is supposed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy about the Government-owned farming entity.

According to its own media release Landcorp: “has introduced a ‘Kiwi Avoidance Training’ policy for dogs residing on all its Northland farms, where kiwi are also known to be resident.

This means that all dogs will receive training to reduce the risk that they will attack a kiwi”.

Really? Is Landcorp supposed to be a farming company or a conservation organisation?

How about just getting on with your core business of farming and stop all this PC, virtue-signalling, do-gooding crap!
