Shar Pei No 3 triumphant in defeat on dogs'n'chips


It was a bit confusing at Parliament yesterday, as Agriculture Minister Jim Anderton answered questions about the planned microchipping of all dogs, because he was speaking as though from the standpoint of magnificent triumph.

The Opposition had to ask him a couple of pointed questions before it could be sure they were both on the same page. But yes, Mr Anderton had in fact lost his battle to persuade the Cabinet to exempt farm dogs from the measure, not won it.

Why, then, was he sounding so terribly pleased with himself?
