Folic acid law shock for Hide – MP Rodney Hide warned New Zealand Food Safety Minister Kate Wilkinson against mass medicating bread with folic acid three months ago – a month before the Herald on Sunday NZ Herald Politics]
The HoS are so up themselves. They claim they “broke” the folic acid story. What a load of crap, this story has been on soft boil for months, ever since Annette King foisted the decision on us by signing up to it as a dying act by a dying government.
Anyway this non-story about Rodney Hide being “shocked” to learn about the Folic Acid issue and warning Kate Wilkinson has a brilliant quote at the end and provides us all with the best reason to ditch the silly nanny state mass-mediction issue once and for all.
Last week Hide said New Zealand had rejected “the nanny state” in the last election.
“It seems to me the only argument in favour of it is we might upset the Australians which I thought was a plus.”
That’s my Rodney.
