Talking of woke nonsense projects - hard to go past the $26million funding to Massey University (P.N.) for the Regenerative Agriculture project.


Please! We have very little degenerative agriculture in N.Z. - it is mostly in the vegetable industry . . . . what we call market gardening.

So how can we re-generate when we haven't done the de-generative bit first.

The entire history of N.Z grassland farming is about the generation of fertile topsoil by grazing animals. It is fundamentally generative.

Anyway that's just semantics.

The real stupidity is that E. Bruce Levy , our foremost agrostologist , wrote the book on this in 1945 .

The Grasslands of New Zealand for the N.Z Army Education Welfare Service.

Three words come to mind: cost-benefit-analysis (prior to any grants being approved).

Universities' failures are a portent of the plunge this country is taking into dark obscurity. Labour's incompetence and skewed value systems are driving this decline, and we are financing it.

All taxpayer funding should demand accountability on how our money is spent. Starting with the governement.

Universities used to be intellectually stimulating environments, valuing viewpoint diversity and healthy robust debate of ideas. They fail miserably on all those important values now. In their current ideologically captured form, how do universities add value to society today?

Which Parliament vote authorised this election bribe? What's the use of the Budget as the introductary paper for the Estimates?

It isn't prudent to be spending more in a time of inflation and exepct the grandkids to pay for the consequences.
