Dancing off Rodney Hide's site comes a suprisingly good piece on the nonsense of 'sustainability' and the implementation by the Nats' Simon Upton of the notion in the RMA -- the act "that totally usurps private property rights in favour of the political management of natural resources for “sustainable use.” And so it does. As Rodney says, 'sustainablility' is "an empty phrase but those who get to define it, get to control all resource use." And so they have.
I look forward to hearing Rodney adopt the repeal of the RMA as party policy-- but then I've been looking forward to that for ten years now...
