Labour's Primary Industry Spokesman Damien O'Connor caught up with The Country's Jamie Mackay for an overview of the year that was.

Firstly O'Connor can't help having a dig about John Key's recent resignation saying his current replacement Bill English makes Andrew Little look "like a rock star".

Then he backs Peter Cullinane and Lewis Road Creamery against Fonterra in their latest supermarket stoush saying the dairy giant is being "a bully".

After demolishing Fonterra, O'Connor moves on to the meat industry and has a swipe at the Shanghai Maling/Silver Fern Farms deal saying "there's not much good news here".


Merry Christmas!
