The Standard have received their orders from head office, and it’s all about chasing the middle now, so no more criticisms towards those needing criticism. Today they have effectively said that the courage shown by Rachel Stewart for criticising Farmers was wrong and that she kinda deserved the threats she received.
Those threats included rape threats and misogynistic slurs against her sexuality.
Good to know where the Standard are setting their standards now.
Perhaps this post slipped through because The Standard is about as diverse as the Labour Party front bench.
As for the Corporate farmers – a wee ditty…
The Grand Old Dukes of Pork
The got $10 Billion Yen
They saw Dairy march to the top of the markets
and then they saw the price plunge down again
UPDATE: Following the Standard’s bizarre assertion that Rachel Stewart kinda had rape threats coming for her intemperate language, does it follow that the Standard also feels that Eleanor Catton kinda deserves being called a traitor for her intemperate language?
