Pretty sure that this won't be rushed through Parliment in NZ. Afterall, they'll need a review by a bunch of specialist "greasy onion" consultants. This a complex and layered problem, enough to make the eyes water at the prospect of the huge amount research needed first. Which onion varieties are susceptable to being greas? Is it actually the onion's fault at all - could be the type of oil used in cooking. Afterall - we already know too much oil in your cooking can be bad for you - the Onion Growers Association will want to weigh in on this - onions don't kill people - oil kills people!
Onions are fast becoming a slippery issue that our members will be best advised to handle with care says Mr Ken Shirley head of the Road Transport Forum.
Mr Shirley stated earlier today that the transportation of the now much maligned onion would have to incur added costs due to the Bunnings furore.
There are no other viable options for distributing such dangerous goods apart from road transport and the public should not start unfairly blaming our members for rising costs.
