We don’t care who’s in government

Quote of the day:

Federated Farmers is an apolitical organisation – “we don’t care who is in government as long as they agree with us”.Conor English

Strictly speaking, he doesn’t mean apolitical, which means not interested in politics, he means not politically aligned.

Federated Farmers is a voluntary organisation which supports and advocates for its members.

It works with governments and political parties on behalf of its members and wider rural community to get the best for them, not to advance any particular political view.

Like other business organisations, and many charities, and unlike most unions, it’s not politically aligned and it’s stronger for that.

    A shame that the Green Party doesn’t act for us and the environment whichever party was in Government too – you would achieve more contributing from inside the tent than looking in from outside and criticising.

    If I could paraphrase what Homepaddock has said “(the organisation) works with governments and political parties on behalf of its members and wider (NZ) community to get the best for them, not to advance any particular political view.”

    A true environmental party as opposed to a socialist cult hidden behind green principles.

  3. Marc – bollocks. Your prejudices are hanging out all over the show. That old worn-out Right-wing cliche is history, bar in the netherlands of the Homepaddock where time stands still.
