#grassgate Stuart Burge, who gave the go ahead for Jam Land (a company co-owned by the Taylors - Angus, Richard, Duncan and Bronnie et al), to spray herbicide on endangered grasslands is the same person NSW Farmers used to inform the EPBC review.

Stuart Burge, was also engaged and no doubt paid to produce this report. But who paid him? As it turns out Burge was engaged by Monaro Farming Systems (MFS). MFS is chaired by Richard Taylor. MFS are collaborating with NSW Farmers.
A grant of $75,000 was awarded to MFS by NSW Deputy Premier and local Nationals member John Barilaro. Barilaro is a close associate of fellow NSW Nationals MP Bronnie Taylor.
Remember Jam Land is owned by Richard Taylor, Angus Taylor, Duncan Taylor, Bronnie Taylor and also David Mitchell et al. David Mitchell was the chair at the time of the Local Land Services.
Coincidentally, the Local Land Services (LLS) also got a grant of $300,000 from the NSW Govt to collaborate with MFS to ensure "regulations and relevant management options are regionally specific and workable".
One of the two MFS representatives on the local review for pilot projects coincidentally is Richard Taylor
So in extraordinary turn of events, a group of people (Richard Taylor, David Mitchell) - under investigation for breaching the EPBC - through associations, they are affiliated with receive grants worth $375,000 from John Barilaro's portfolio.
We also know that Angus Taylor lobbed into Frydenberg's office to represent who knows who, this week he claims it was an unnamed farmer near Yass, to talk about the grasslands, all the while representing the farmers of Hume.
Which is very odd, because the Guardian's FOI docs show that after that meeting Frydenberg's office contacted the Dept of Environment, the focus is on Monaro: "for farmers in the Monaro this is the "number 1 issue".
The focus seems to be on the Monaro - no mention of Yass, near Yass, Boorowa, Hume, Goulburn. Of course the Monaro is where the Taylors have extensive land interests and where the alleged spraying occurred.
So Angus walks into Josh's office and talks about Hume, farmers near Yass etc, and Josh's office take from the meeting is we have to focus on the Monaro as it's the number 1 issue for them. #lostintranslation
Even the bureaucracy says it was meeting with Angus to discuss the listing of Monaro grasslands.....nothing about the farmers in Hume.
Richard Taylor, Bronnie Taylor, Duncan Taylor, Angus Taylor, David Mitchell et al are co-owners of Jam Land. Somehow through luck grants are awarded, reviews are conducted, fellow Ministers are lobbied and there is nothing to see here.
So to end where we began @MsVeruca
