Party Games 45/55 Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party

The shooters and fishers have added another member to their alliance, transforming from the Shooters & Fishers Party to the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party. Presumably the farmer is the guy with a dog in the party logo.

This expansion of coverage means that they've added to their policies of winding back restrictions on gun laws and letting people fish wherever with some stuff related to farming. This includes letting farmers prevent mining on their property (reasonable), letting farmers clear land as they see fit (questionable), providing support for farmers implementing water conservation efforts (good), and preventing the government from stopping people burning on public land to protect their property (really?).

Their environment policies in general sound like they feel like the Greens have been too successful in preventing people from accessing nature.

Finally, they should have used an oxford comma in their party name.
