OPINION: Your canine crusader knows there is a great deal of unease - especially in rural NZ - about the Government's three waters reforms.
Minto, who came to fame 40 years ago as the head of the anti-Springbok tour movement, recently wrote an open letter on a left-wing blog accusing the Groundswell movement of... "giving platforms to vile and repugnant racism and anti-Semitism".
Minto claimed he had been "informed" that the group was holding meetings where speakers... "promoted a series of conspiracy theories which centred on Jews, Socialists and Communists working together through the United Nations to promote 'world government'".
The problem was he was misinformed about these meetigns and they had nothing to do with Groundswell.
The Hound reckons minto probably took too many hits to the head from the Red Squad back in 1981 and this could be the reason he was way off beam - again - on this claim.
