Making it up

Written by 

This old mutt reckons the old saying ‘lies, damn lies and statistics’ should be amended to ‘lies, damn lies and Greenpeace claims’ because the multinational, tax-dodging political activists been caught telling porkies again.

Greenpeace recently decided to gain publicity by protesting the development of dairy farming on Simon’s Pass Station in the Mackenzie Country – almost a decade after the development was approved. Then its anti-farming frontwoman Gen Toop made a number of claims including the supposed destruction of black stilt populations and new consents being granted for the dairy farm. However, the problem for Toop and Greenpeace is there are no black stilts on the offending property. Meanwhile, the local district council confirms there are currently no consent applications before it in regard to Simons Pass Station.
