Dig baby dig

Stuff reports:

Twenty-one applications have been approved on conservation since Prime Jacinda Ardern’s speech promising there would be no more. 

The delay in legislation to back up the commitment has meant that for the past two years it’s been business as usual, and applications have continued to be processed. As one conservationist puts it: “Rome continues to burn” while the promise has floundered.

Between November 2017 and the end of January 21, applications have been approved.

Just another in the long line of failed promises.

Personally it was a stupid promise, as not all conservation has the same value, and treating scrubby stewardship land the same as National Park is incredibly stupid.

But what it does show is yet again we have a Government great at announcements and incredibly bad at achievements.
