Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm

The old story about the chicken and the pig discussing the farmers breakfast and who should have more say. Of course the chicken is involved, but the pig is committed. David Leyonhjelm, like so many "consultants", is barely even a chicken in this debate. I agree the farm finance package is misguided, but only because the Govt is missing the point. Aggressive fiscal management to bring down dollar would benefit farmers and every other export related business in the country. Moving the currency to 95c would deliver about 3bn benfit to the ag sector and improve the Govt bottom line in one go.

Leyonhjelm has again demonstrated his ignorance and arrogance misrepresenting the work that GPA has and is doing. GPA fought hard to balance the market power of bulk handlers and PGA sought to empower CBH in the hope of a windfall when it is demutualised. In fact David, GPA was very effective and the conditions of passing of the wheat Bill were much more favourable and in fact acknowledged the market failure that did and continues to occur in the grain market. There have been moves to restrict access to and use of chemicals and GPA has been effective in averting that so far too.

Burrs under my saddle

Yes we need to make our pollies and parties earn our vote.
I hope this new party gets off the ground to at least give us a choice.
