    Environmental Activists Accused Of Forcing Mining Companies To Obey The Law

    The minister says he’s worried the use of these laws could start an unfortunate precedent with unforeseen consequences.

    “If activists keep using the law like this soon it could be difficult to build new mines on our environmental regions. Soon, we might actually have to start moving away from coal mining as our major foundation for energy and before you know it we’ll have a cleaner world. The very thought of it makes me sick.”

    It’d be hilarious – if National weren’t actually going round changing the laws to make polluting easier rather than harder.

    DTB -you post above. Its hard whether it be truth or satire now…

  4. Mad Plumber 4

    How do those idiots work out that farming is not dangerous. I have worked on dairy farms as a employee (had a rush of blood to the head) and as a plumber and drainlayer. But construction is more dangerous than a farm. Bullshit.

    the irony is astounding when Paul Henry asks if narcissists make good bosses, and is Key a psycopath, etc, Henry actually went quiet for a moment there, good man Tomas Chamorro…..

      haha – short-term deception strategies.

      • One Anonymous Bloke 6.1.1

        Yes – a nice turn of phrase, especially given the line of questioning 🙂

    • seeker 6.2

      wow… narcissist ……. key to a tee ……. thanks tomas……. and to think that paul henry has helped us draw closer to New Zealand’s enlightenment.

    • ianmac 6.3

      There has been discussion here on whether people like Key are narcissists or psychopathic. Every word that Henry’s guest uttered seem to point to one answer. And where does Henry himself fit. Great piece thanks whateva.
