    But I suppose if the government is going to 'finance' punters into them there should be some takers, beggars can't be choosey eh.
    There is only $2 billion in the pot for this initiative, to be recycled as properties are sold. That is not a lot of dough when talking houses, even 'affordable' ones, especially if there is government money remaining in the financing. A plan is needed, open and transparent please. So far we have only 'in due course'.

    "The National Government was no friend of conservation, but the new Labour Government has shown itself in this move, to be no friend of science, or conservation either", Mrs Rose said.

    This gives a more balanced view.

    I get the feeling that Chris and Winston aren't or will never be friends

    "I have absolutely no regard for the Right Honourable Winston Peters, and have had no regard for him from the time I acted for the National Party caucus in the early 1990s, when he was removed from the caucus for disloyalty.
    "And old habits don't change very quickly, and he has made absolutely no contribution to New Zealand in my view."

    Dr Tim Mackle (DairyNZ) had a light treatment from Jack Tame on TV this morning. He certainly has a smiling, agreeable face. But DairyNZ is under the control of Fonterra, and I think that's where Tim Mackle came from.

    I'm hoping this new govt will help bring the nation's dairy farmers around to looking much harder at water quality in our waterways. These are the people who own vast tracts of the countryside (them and the banks), running an inefficient process that turns the sun's energy into milkfat and water, that is then trucked laboriously to factories for energy-intensive processing. It's a huge industry, rivalling tourism, but has byproducts that damage waterways. The landowners are good at paying low taxes and relatively low wages, so I always wonder if that commercial effort could go somewhere else that would benefit wider NZ more.

    Rachel Stewart (not a popular person with dairy farmers) is watching the latest PR efforts by Fonterra.

    Wrong target Elzoro. Dairy farmers already have 96% or 24,000 km's of waterways fenced off. You need to be aiming at beef and pig farms followed by sheep and deer.

    A fence doesn't stop run off from mob stocked cows.
