Sucking on the Taxpayers’ Tit, Ctd

All this talk about troughers got me thinking about what they’re really wanting. Wet nursing and milk banking is all fun and games, but the one that has serious implications on New Zealand is their idea of plain packaging of infant formula.

Problem is that some of these Brestapo groups in their push to have all mums breastfeed their babies, ignore (or are paid to discourage mums that struggle to breastfeed.

This harassment of mums is now threatening to reach a whole new level as the Brestapo take on the manufacturers of the product they so loathe.

They’ve clearly taken on the lessons of those troughers in the anti-tobacco industry and jumped ahead of the game.

The Brestapo don’t seem to care about how limiting (destroying) the branding of, for example, New Zealand’s largest company and other New Zealand companies infant formula brands will impact on this country’s global competitiveness.

The Brestapo certainly don’t care about the Government’s efforts to have Tim Groser’s head up the WTO or how Tim’s trying to explain though the laugher of our trading partners why NZ is limiting the IP rights on one of our country’s key exports.

The Brestapo don’t care.

It’s bordering on time Ryall storms into his health ministry and informs his officials that the National Government stands for Competitive Enterprise, Individual Freedom and Choice and Personal Responsibility.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
