Your old mate was disappointed, but not surprised, recently when the chardonnay socialists at RNZ teamed up with the wacky animal activist group SAFE to try to do a hit-job on the Five Star Beef Ltd feedlot near Ashburton.

The supposedly independent team at ‘red radio’ were only too happy to run the unadulterated claims by SAFE. However, some reality was put back into the story when Federated Farmers’ straight-talking meat and wool chairman Miles Anderson told RNZ that SAFE did not really care about animal welfare and instead want to end all animal farming. “They are vegan fundamentalists. I take most of what they say with a grain of salt. It would do them a world of good to have a nice leg of lamb.” Brilliant.
