Lock him up!

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: This old mutt notes that Geoff Reid, an 'environmental activist' - whose activism appears to be limited to surreptitiously creeping around farms in Southland taking photos on the dime of Greenpeace, recently published more of his creepy farm shots.

However, it appears the latest photos were taken in early September - when Auckland and the rest of the country were in lockdown.

This begs the question: Did Reid - and his financial backers - deliberately break lockdown 4 rules by helping him sneak out of Covid-infested Auckland to take (photo-shopped?) snaps in Auckland?

Surely leaving Auckland to take dodgy photos for Facebook hardly qualifies as 'essential work'?

Have either the police and/or health officials contacted Reid and his backers to ask some hard questions about his movements during lockdown?

Milking it?

OPINION: Your canine crusader understands members of the 'strategic groups' invoked in the Government-backed 'Fit for a Better World' programme - grandiosely labelled as: "A roadmap to accelerate the transformation of the food and fibre sector over the next 10 years" are on a pretty good wicket for not doing much.
