#HeyClint how did I do with my budget tweets?

God help us if the Greens ever get control of Treasury ? they can?t even read a Budget document.

The?horribly sanctimonious Holly Walker got it embarrassingly wrong with her Budget analysis on Twitter.

Now that would be massive news ? if only it were true. Poor old Clint?will be fuming that Holly didn?t check with him before spouting off.? Read more »

David Carter’s fibbing, Ctd

David Carter has continued to fib about the cost to farmers?of the One Plan decision in an attempt to provide farmers a?right to pollute the hell out of our rivers, then expect us?to pay for the clean up.

He has been schooled by the Chairman of Horizons, who has?called him out for his fibs, and highlighted the truth about?the One Plan.

“The Plan has been through the required process under the?RMA, with appellants to the Plan presenting their cases to?the Environment Court. The Court heard a range of economic?and environmental evidence and all parties were given the?opportunity to put forward their arguments and the Court?formed their decision on the balance of that evidence.”

The Court’s decision determined the average costs to farmers?to be on average 5 per cent of annual operating expenses.

David Carter’s dodgy 22-43% increase in costs were pulled out?of someones arse, didn’t make the grade in the environment?court and are considered unsound by people in the industry.

Before readers start thinking Bruce Gordon is some hippy?tree hugger, he is not. He is a farmer. And he has obviously?read the One Plan judgment, unlike our socialist mate?Carter.

“We are not here to drive farmers off their land, we’re here?to deliver a future for our Region that is both economically?and environmentally sustainable.”
