But Federated Farmers ARE the National Party in gumboots
Goff's National Party quip riles farmers
Labour leader Phil Goff has angered industry leaders at the National Agricultural Fieldays by suggesting that Federated Farmers were considered the National Party in gumboots.
The Federated Farmers faux outrage at Phil Goff's brilliant description of them as 'The National Party in gumboots' is as credible as the Witch King of the Nazgul taking offense at being called a spooky guy with a sword. Federated Farmers are so right wing they make Gengis Khan look like a Green Party voting vegan. That they are trying to claim they are 'apolitical' is hilarious when their former President Charlie Pederson described the environmental movement as a war against humanity!
The National Party are the political arm of the Federated Farmers and pretending they are not is like the Unions pretending the support ACT.
