Blame game

Written by 

The blame game over the collapse of agri training provider Taratahi rages on.

Opposition National says the Government has turned its back on Taratahi.

But Agriculture Minster Damien O’Connor isn’t buying it. Responding to a Rural News article on Twitter, he described National’s claim as “BS”.

“In trouble since 2014. Nats buried heads in sand. We will fix it! O’Connor tweeted.

The future of Taratahi remains in limbo after it went into interim liquidation just before Christmas at the request of its board of trustees.
