About time!

Written by  The Hound

Speaking of anti-farming types, this old mutt hears that serial farming bashers Fish and Game – or Bitch and Complain as many know them – may be undergoing a change of attitude.

Unhappiness from F&G members about the organisation’s continual attacks on farming, and its own precarious financial situation, has seen a number of new board members elected, the end of long time president Lindsay Lyons reign, and a leash put on negative anti-farming statements.

However, it appears former Forest and Bird officer and current Conservation Minister Eugene Sage – unhappy with F&G’s more sensible approach to the agriculture sector – is keen to instigate a review and possible takeover of the organisation by her department.

The Hound reckons it would be a pity if, just when it is coming to its senses, F&G goes from the fry pan into the fire in regards to extremists running it!
