Nats cop it too

Written by  Milking It

Interestingly, none of the politicians managed to escape the wrath of farmers at the protest march organised by the lobby 50 Shades of Green.

There were boos and jeers when Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor, Forestry Minister Shane Jones and National agri spokesman Todd Muller arrived to meet protesters at the Beehive.

While the biggest boos and jeers were reserved for Jones and O’Connor, Muller wasn’t spared either.

Some farmers feel that none of the parties, including National, have done enough to for them on climate change. The near-unanimous passing of the Zero Carbon Bill is a case in point.
