KIWI WHITTLE!

 No relation to Sir Frank.

Hot on the heels of a promise to increase participation of the idle in forestry notwithstanding the current widespread problems of a high accident rates, too often fatal, Mr Cunliffe is proposing a drive to turn that around and is again proposing a many times rejected notion, NZ Inc can further process our trees.

A couple of little problems identified over and over again.

Buyers of our logs want to process them in their plants, with their lower labour costs and use every last bit of sawdust in the process.

Has the dopey bastard never noticed the enormous piles of bark, wood chips and sawdust rotting adjacent to the few mills still cutting up logs here or smoking kilns generating energy from that waste

Has he never driven past a subdivision where tilt slab, concrete block and steel framing are increasingly the preferred materials.
Cladding is manufactured from cement or resin based product.

His Lapdog soon to be in situ spoodle has joined the chorus with a promise of a Million bucks to the first highrise constructed after they win power.



Will look great in Greenhithe or out West.

Maybe rearm the police.

The next peacekeeping deployment


Or the SAS


Ministers' selfdrives


Or even new trains

Here's a thought - I wonder why that is and how it came to be the normal state of affairs? It's just one of those intractable mysteries, right?

One rather gets the impression he has. More to the point, have the sad sacks of shit who make up our current government lifted their snouts from their free Chinese meals long enough to notice it?

When I mentioned this to a client who is at the coalface of the forestry & timber game, he just laughed and said Mr Cunliffe doesn't know what he is on about.
Ssums it up really
