Rod Puts the Hart Before The Course

Immediately after geting himself booted out of the Lobour Love Bed, Rod comes out swinging and highlights the key issue. The mind blowing earth chattering issue which shows why he should have been made Minister for Milk Bottles.

I didn't think the whole shambles could become any more bizarre or surreal but Rod just made it happen.

You wouldn't want to take the Greens along to the Melbourne Cup.

So what are they replaced with, and who pays for their disposal?

Cartons are non-recyclable. So ratepayers pay for their disposal in landfill. And plastic bottles are made of oil. The price of milk has already increased once in the last 12 months due to packaging costs.

Glass bottles seem emininently sensible to me. I reckon they'll make a widespread return. 10 years from now, I'd be surprised if there's any plastic milk at all.

"Cartons are non-recyclable". Well I put my cartons (minus plastic spouts) out with the rest of my paper rubbish for recycling.

Plastic bottles - I put mine out for recycling after giving them a bit of a rinse and squashing them down.

Ultimately it will be the Green party who are not recycled, but fossilised.

The problem is, none of them are recyclable - they have shown that they are too old and barren and too bereft of common sense.

They probably holiday at Tiwai Point to remember the "good old days".

I can envisage in 150 years Geology 101 students going to Coromandel to look for the remains of the Green party HQ.

I was feeling a bit sorry for the Greens today. But Rod's outburst over such a non-issue has convinced me that they are indeed where they belong.

Rod Donald is an idiot. The solutions to this are user pays, and the free market.

Rod is peddling his usual brand of broken window economics. He sees only the waste generated by used cartons, forgetting the waste generated by the labour, energy and materials required to resterilize bottles.

If Graeme Hart wants to make a profit he will pick the option that is more efficient and thus better for the environment. No intervention from Comrade Donald is required.

The Greens leadership haven't got the political nous to ever make it into government. They should look at dumping them before the next election.

What they need is a machiavellian greenie, if such thing is possible.

Poor Rod, reduced to fighting for milk bottles. Did the writer deliberately put "rearguard battle" and "getting wind" in the same sentence or what?

you guys are just jealous because our MPs are actually politically active at the moment. When was the last time we heard a squeek from any other politians? They're all on holiday, except its business as usual for the Greens, keep pumping out the PRs, making the papers, calling people up and getting stuff done.

P.S. Rod is an absolute fanatic on keeping NZ manufacturering plants open, so that once corporate globalisation hits the skids when oil is too expensive, we have somewhere local that can still actually manufacture something, still have the skills, the capacity onshore.

Anonymous you fool!! You've let the cat out of the bag. You have disclosed the real reason for ALL the Greens'policies. They are all based on the rapturous faith that one day 'corporate globalisation hits the skids' and we'll all be saved. You know that's exactly what the Exclusive Brethren believe. Like you, they call it "The Rapture." When did you last meet with them? Quick, someone tell the Herald and RNZ.
