Who’s paying?

Written by  The Hound

Your canine crusader noticed a full-page ad recently run in a farming paper calling on meat companies SFF and Alliance Group to pay back the $70m-plus they claimed in wage subsidy.

What caught this old mutt’s eye is that the man behind the campaign is Simon Lusk – infamous self-described ‘political operative’.

Lusk was a key figure in Nicky Hager’s book, Dirty Politics. He also has close links to the bankrupt Cameron Slater, the former figurehead of the scumbag Whale Oil website, and is a close confidant of disgraced former National Party Whip and soon-to-be ex MP Jamie-Lee Ross.

The Hound is told that Lusk does nothing for free or even cheaply, so it will be interesting to see who is funding his latest campaign.

Surely it has nothing to do with a current very high-ranking government minister, minor party leader and vocal critic of SFF?
