DJ friends?

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: Your canine crusader wants to know just what drugs the politicians and bureaucrats are on in Wellington.

The reason for asking this is that team Jacinda and her half-baked bureaucrats have allowed in 564 'entertainers' to enter NZ on the basis they are essential workers. Really?

Yet they have only managed to allow in 15 - yes, 15 - overseas halal slaughtermen to service the meat export sector - the heart of our export economy.

It seems under team Jacinda, 'entertainers' are more essential than doctors, nurses, vets and other people who service the health and primary sectors.

The present system has the making of a pantomime, which would be funny if the whole issue wasn't so serious.

Maybe if Jacinda had a few friends in the meat, dairy, shearing, veterinary and ag contracting sector - rather than DJs and entertainers - things might be different!

How come?

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.
