What a jerk

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

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’.
