The Natural Dairy NZ ‘we love you long time and Bill Ralston retirement fund’ campaign


As attention seeking as Winston running in Helensville, Natural Dairy NZ launched their ‘we love you long time and Bill Ralston retirement fund’ advertising campaign last week where Natural Dairy NZ (who seem to have robbed us of our country, brand and main product all in one corporate name) explained why we should hand over our farming land to this Chinese company.

Brothers and sisters, I don’t wish to sound cynical, but I don’t think that Natural Dairy NZ should be able to buy Crafar Farms as easily as they have bought the National Party, that’s right it was revealed last week that $200 000 was ‘donated’ to the National Party via a wealthy Chinese couple linked to Natural Dairy NZ. Brothers and sisters, why would we allow Chinese companies who have access to 0% loans to buy up our productive land when China has a strict policy of not letting any foreigner buy any Chinese land? If we are all 'free market' about this, how 'free market' are companies backed with 0% interest loans from a Communist regime?

Which is why it is so refreshing to see the (American backed?) fightback start...

Campaign demands halt to farm sales
A nationwide campaign starting today wants an immediate halt to sales of New Zealand farms to foreigners. The Save the Farms group, led by Remuera property developer John McKearney, wants public support to convince the Government to stop the sales until the country has had a robust public debate.

...we shouldn't let Natural Dairy NZ buy the Crafar Farms as easily as they have bought the National Party. How about we allow China to buy our farms when they allow us to buy their farms, and they can keep Bill Ralston as part of the deal.

Nope.
Is every Dairy farm in recievership Chris?

No?

Thats because Crafar Farms were shoddily run, and they were punished accordingly.

Organic farms, with lower stocking rates, and higher returns on milk solids are the future

No one can buy land in China - Chinese or foreigner. Perhaps the defining legacy of the 1949 revolution. So making a big deal of the fact that New Zealanders cannot buy land in China is as absurd as saying 'dutch people cannot smoke cannabis in New Zealand' or 'australians are not allowed to murder people in france'.

Natural Dairy by the way is a Hong Kong listed company.
In Hong Kong foreigners have the same right to invest as locals. In fact most of Hong Kong's most expensive real estate, swanky Lan Kwai Fong in Hong Kong islands Central District is owned by Allan Zeeman (a German Jew) who is also politically influential - even though he only took up HK citizenship in 2008.

So if you want reciprocity in respect of land purchases (in itself a ridiculous concept - countries should make laws to suit themselves - not based on what other people do), you should be comparing New Zealand to Hong Kong, not New Zealand to mainland China.

NZ need to hold onto their land. Even though the NZ ET scheme will make this almost impossible in future years if it is not kicked out.

NZers might go hungry, or eat poor quality food in future years especially if,as some are now predicting, we are heading into a small ice age due to reduced solar activity over the next 10 years on, starting soon.
