I thought about trying to post some analytical comment about what happened yesterday and why sheep, beef and dairy farms are safe places to work but worm farms and mini golf ranges are dangerous.
In keeping the Tallys and farmers happy National has turned the legislation designed to address the Pike River deaths into an object of ridicule.
I just hope that this Government is prepared for the coming onslaught of worm farm and mini golf deaths that they think will occur. And explain how deaths on other farms are not predictable.
Update: Maybe this is why the Government thinks that worm farming is so dangerous …
