        who needs science and economics if you haven’t go a…conscience?

  1. Something worth spending a bit on:

    National had a big predator free policy suggestion but I don’t recall seeing any details or money.

      The best thing DoC could do would be to hand over most of its 6.5 million hectares of neglected and predated reserves to private ownership.

    Great, now will the Greesn explain HOW?

    No 1080 for sure but does trapping work well enough to get to total radication?

    Though DOC are for more 1080 drops.

  3. The end of a long tradition – Girl Guide biscuits.

    I quite liked them (buttered in particular) but it’s years since I have had any.

    No more, but there must be something else that’s similar,.

    What agenda is he running with this union official’s comments? NZ never had the ability to make railway rails, even for trams. It needs massive steel rolling plants. Without any evidence, of even just photos of broken rails, he launches into an anti-Chinese attack. Some steel out of China is shit, and it has caused a lot of problems, but much of it is good and meets the required standard.
