Friends?

This old mutt was a little surprised to hear Winston Peters and Shane Jones both putting the boot into farmers recently over the legitimate concerns the sector has raised about the proposed methane reduction targets set by the Government in its climate change legislation.

Peters snidely referred to farmers’ concerns, saying: “Sometimes the stuff at the end of cows can get into your ears and contaminate your thinking.” Meanwhile, the ‘mouth of the north’ and self confessed, taxpayer funded, pornography watcher Shane Jones reacted to criticism by slagging off farmers, saying, “If they are not milking or chasing cows they are moaning.” The Hound suggests the farming sector remembers these snide remarks by NZ First at the ballot boxes next year.
