Spell check

Written by  The Hound

Your old mutt was not surprised to see the NZ Dairy Industry Awards hastily remove the title of this year’s competition winner Nick Bertram, following his politically incorrect tweets being made public.

Even the Hound was taken aback by some of the publicly available comments Bertram had made on social media over the years.

One would have thought, in this modern day and age, the organisers of the NZDIA would have done an audit of all its award participants’ social media profiles – just to ensure that nothing embarrassing would come back to haunt them.

Clearly, this was not the case and now a large amount of egg is all over the NZDIA’s collective faces.

However, the Hound suggests Bertram’s biggest crime was not his unsavoury tweets, but his appalling spelling and grammar and he should have been ruled out of the competition on this alone!
