All Claas!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: Your canine crusader - like many in the sector probably would have - raised an eyebrow when he heard the news that UK Tory Party MP Neil Parish was recently forced to resign after he "accidentally" opened an X-rated video while looking at machinery online.

Parish quit last month after admitting he twice watched he twice watched adult clips in the House of Commons.

However, the farmer claimed he had only viewed the porn by accident because he had been looking for "tractors" online and had got "into another website with a sort of a very similar name".

According to reports from his friends, the former MP was actually looking for Dominator combine harvesters when the search resulted in that hardcore filth.

Oh yeah? The Hound reckons if that is the case then quite a few machinery buffs in rural NZ could find themselves in trouble if they go online looking for a new harvester or tractor!

Why?

OPINION: A mate of your canine crusader's - and a Silver Fern Farms supplier and shareholder - is less than impressed that his meat company is holding a series of upcoming 'farmer forums', where woke, anti-farming commentator Rod Oram will be the MC.

Dirty water

OPINION: The Hound reckons the Government's unpopular and controversial Three Waters reforms is creating plenty of jobs - for bureaucrats and contractors - but not for the local communities who are having their water assets stolen 'co-governed' and controlled by four new mega water entities.

Junket!

OPINION: This old mutt reckons it doesn’t take long for farmer directors to get their noses well and truly in the trough when they get elected to levy organisation boards.
