The Fed Farmers have used Goff’s speech on monetary policy to have another whinge about beneficiaries, who they reckon are somehow to blame for the high dollar that’s crippling our exporters.
Weird, I know, but then that’s the Feds for you.
The dogwhistle term they’re using is ‘government spending’, but thanks to a recent admission by their hilariously inept economics spokesperson we know that what the Feds are really talking about is cuts to welfare.
Ironic, really, coming the farmers, who under National’s ETS are about to become the biggest welfare bludgers in the country. Perhaps when they start paying their own way in the world we might take them a little more seriously.
