The Hound notes that one of the country’s poorest financially performing state-owned enterprises – the Government farming entity Landcorp (or as it calls itself in a typically virtual signalling way) Pāmu – still loves to spend big on promoting itself.

Recently this money-losing outfit hired the halls of Parliament and put on a lavish function, trying to impress political and PR types in Wellington about how innovative and great it is.

Of course, no mention was made of Landcorp losing huge money, paying no dividend and having more inept, taxpayer-funded people on its advisory boards than the United Nations.

Appropriately for an outfit that’s all sizzle and no sausage, its minister in charge is Shane Jones.

Your old mate suggests it is serendipitous that such a joke of a SOE should have such a joke of a minister as its boss.
