The message to the NSW Government is loud and clear: greyhound racing will not be banned without a fight.
Once more, The Nationals don't have the ticker to stand up to their Liberal Party Coalition partner on a contentious rural issue.
There's only one party that's not afraid to stand up for the bush against the a Liberal Party Premier, and that's the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party.
NSW Premier Mike Baird today announced plans for a state-wide ban on greyhound racing, effective 1 July 2017. Just like other difficult issues, he's placed it in the "too hard" basket.
