The vast majority of Kiwis are smart enough to work under the protocols and procedures needed to stop the spread of the virus. Are aussies a lot smarter than us ?
Changing the definition of essential businesses and allowing businesses to operate safely NOW would save thousands of businesses,without ANY government subsidy.
Good to see the provincial growth fund folk have finally recognised that water storage and irrigation are very good investments for our small,semi bankrupt country. I expect major projects will be back on the agenda now that the tourism bubble has popped,...
You are probably better off asking a tree.
Obviously what he did was dumb However, on balance, is switching to a new minister in the middle of a pandemic really the best thing to do?
Correct. Jacinda gave Bauer an easy out by not declaring them essential. Companies like Jucy Rentals were struggling big time before this governance disaster and Likely to get a golden parachute as well. The list goes on. This government is completely out ...
I have spent a good part of the day lobbying Fonterra directors to put a bid on the Womans Weekly .The dairy womens network could rebrand it to the Dairy Womens Weekly and educate the people on where their food comes from.
We are self sufficient in winter feed and the irrigation ,supplemented by water storage has boosted yields with the nice ,dry weather. Be kind to your Southland food producers and from my observations at the supermarket almond juice and all that sort of ...
Hi Robert .I can't talk for Southland but in Canterbury it will be business as usual with winter feed. Dairy farmers are a very resilient lot fortified by years of media and political persecution from people like you brother. I can assure you the cows will...
I hope that in the future politicians and activists stop demonising farmers. Without official advice I have been trying to figure out what services we need to keep our dairy farms producing food. It is a very long list and we all like a chat but if we need...
When you consume dairy products have a think about where it comes from,the people you have demonised and your dirty politics.
So Rod Oram believes that supplementary feeding,water storage and irrigation is not profitable. He needs to go and talk to some FARMERS,rather than a few idealistic broken arses
One that will be used to maximum advantage .
One can only imagine all that spare capacity available to launder cash. [In future, please don’t make stupid comments like that; they are not funny and they are not ok – Incognito]
The PM is repeating a lie. A bit rich to call her a liar. When are you lefties going to start putting the boot into dairy farmers again. Starting to feel ignored down on the farm. Can't wait for the tax cuts next year.
Never trust a pompous clown with 3 billion dollars of other peoples money to give away,my mother used to tell me.
Pork is more expensive than chicken and your good mates winston and shane buy it by the container load. What was in it for graeme hart ?
Barrels of pork are great currency. The pork belly on Shane Jones BBQ tonight has been marinaded with taxpayers hard earned cash. Your just jealous you didn't get an invite to pig out at the trough. I am happy paying for his last supper.
The crowd at Waitangi are like a pimple on an appendage. The vast majority of New Zealanders don't give a tinkers toss about what is going on in that cess pit of grievance and barrels of pork.
squeeze me a lemon. The right dishonourable Winston Peters is as pure as the yellow snow.
Neandathal were not that smart. Their competitors were better hunters.
Animal and dairy protein is what our species developed on. Plant protein was good for dinosaurs and herbivorous mammals. Vegans are going to be quickly out smarted by the omnivires and will probably end up like the Neandathal.
Just call them deplorables and get it off your chest sweetie
Grammar police. Last resort to deflect away from the facts.
The firearm in question was an antique lever action .22 rifle . Thats a problem with rushed legislation when the vast majority of the legislators have no idea what they are doing. You,for example seem pretty ignorant about firearms and thats OK but many ...
It's police harrassment ,pure and simple. Hagar got off on a technicality but it took the wind out of his sails. As a licensed firearms owner ,I have hunted all my life and am legally obliged to controll pests and euthanise animals that are suffering with ...
needs to be a lot of papers on what makes arsonists tick and why fuel levels are so high as well, please.
Haven't heard from the Prime Minister for a long while.I trust she is finding the long holidays relaxing and therapeutic.
I cannot understand why this government has alienated firearms license holders who are probably the most law abiding group of citizens in New Zealand. Then,through their total incompetence make personal details of license holders available to every Tom ...
we are looking at another record year for grass growth. This slight increase in CO2 is making my bottom line look fantastic.Those glasshouse guys that pump in CO2 know something.
If rent is too low will be considered a fringe benefit and subject to that tax.
