Matt McCarten’s own Yeah/Nah moment

Matt McCarten appears to be changing his mind to suit his latest rant about oil drilling. He has had his very own Yeah/Nah moment.

In today’s Herald on Sunday opinion piece:

“Half of all New Zealand jobs and 70 per cent of our export revenue are directly linked to our clean, green reputation. Deep-sea oil drilling interests claim our Government could receive $300 million from it. That’s $75 per New Zealander. We trade away our best marketing brand for that?” 

Four months ago when writing on Fonterra he had an entirely different point of view.

“The 100 per cent Pure NZ brand was always opportunist marketing. The smugly branded clean image it projected was never actually true

I wish these idiots would make up their minds.

100% pure is “opportunist marketing”, yeah…nah “it’s our best marketing brand”.
