What a jerk

Written by  The Hound

Your old mate notes that serial whinger Mike Joy continues to put the boot into the farming sector.

This time he’s gone international, with an ‘opinion’ piece recently published on The New York Times website. Joy and co-writer David Larsen (a film critic on the left wing millennials blog The Spinoff) claim that Canterbury’s “freshwater easily ranks among the worst environmental disasters in New Zealand history,” in their piece titled ‘The Incontinent Cows of Middle-Earth’.

And this is not the first time Joy has committed such ‘economic treason’ against NZ. About a decade ago, he gave a BBC journalist similarly overly sensationalised and simplified claims about the country’s freshwater status for the Pommy’s hit-job interview with then PM John Key.
