OPINION: A group of New Zealand farmers who collectively sold $1 million worth of cattle to a live export company in March are still waiting to be paid.
After spending nine days in the Scottish capital talking climate change, the delegation spent 10 days isolating upon returning to New Zealand.
Critics point out that Shaw spent more time in isolation than he spent in Glasgow where he announced the Government’s pre-existing policies and NZ joining the Global Methane Pledge.
Critics question why Shaw even bothered to go, burning jet fuel heading to Glasgow to announce things New Zealand had already announced.
It could have been worse though. At least he didn’t take a private jet like 118 of the attending state leaders did, to attend a summit that produced more hot air than progress.
