Is it all about dairying?

Is there a connection between Dutch dairy interests and the leaked tapes from the National Party conference?

The Hive  has joined some dots and reached that conclusion.

Whether or not she’s right about the links there is no doubt that European farmers will have a lot to gain when New Zealand dairying is severely constrained by the Emissions Trading Scheme.

Not only would that be bad for the New Zealand economy, the irony is it would be worse for the global environment because our pastoral dairy system is much greener than the European feed-lot one.
