Farmers have come under fire this week from MP Shane Jones, who says they need to stop "bitching and moaning". Jones launched into farmers while talking to host Jamie Mackay on The Country yesterday.

"I don't like the term 'whingeing'," says Katie Milne. "But we do like to highlight and try to talk to the issues that do affect us that people do have control over."
