I never liked the Crafar farms. They had a deserved reputation for poor farming practice and were repeatedly successfully prosecuted for polluting some quite special environments.
Is it just me, or is the sight of a corporate raider battling a foreign government over the right to feast on the corpse of the Crafar farms a little more than revolting? If the answer is "Michael Fay or Shanghai Pengxin Corporation", surely someone is asking the wrong question.
The government has suggested that land prices are too high (as per my previous post). Have they considered that this kind of thing plays some part?
