NZ First MP Richard Prosser on twitter yesterday:
2.55 pm Green future = hand-woven flax bicycles and free-range lentil farming. All cultivation done by hand with wooden spades
2.58 pm Green future = no mining or manufacturing, so no computers or cellphones – back to the abacus and the pencil we go
3.00 pm Green future = carrier pigeons and stone tablets, except you won’t be allowed to quarry the stone – what a quandary
This was during question time in Parliament, about the same time Russel Norman was questioning Bill English (exact timing of questions is difficult to identify):
Question: Does he agree with the Pure Advantage report released today that “green growth represents a huge opportunity for all Kiwis to prosper”; if so, what will he do to put New Zealand on a green growth pathway?
