Quislings?

Written by  The Hound

OPINION: Your old mate notes that the farming haters at Bitch & Complain (Fish & Game) are now parroting the ‘progressive’ words of both Beef+Lamb and Dairy NZ chairs Andrew Morrison and Jim van der Poel, while demonising Fed Farmers in F&G’s ongoing campaign against the ag sector.

Unfortunately, for both Morrison and van der Poel, claims that their organisations are not quisling-like sell-outs of the farming sector have been irreparably damaged and undermined by the public backing from Bitch & Complain.

With friends like the anti-farming types at Bitch&Complain, your old mate suggest it is little wonder why farmers around NZ are questioning the value of the $100 million in levies they are charged each year to fund Beef+Lamb and Dairy NZ.
