How long will our Government ignore the New Zealand People's wishes while stripping away our rights to privacy. There are some rotten eggs representing us and herding us into a "Darker" Future. Not Brighter.
I was amazed that our Minister of Defence's only comment about the United States spying on it's Allies' Leaders and Citizen's was that New Zealand has nothing to worry about because we're so insignificant and there's nothing going on here - New Zealand is boring.... he may be right but you don't look good kissing American butt JC - plain and simple.
What Jonathan didn't say is what he thought of the accused actions of the U.S. intelligence agency's activities. What would his answer be "Spying on Allies is bad - bad form USA!" but no his lips were busy somewhere else.

Guess who's holding the the "Hands Off Our Privacy Parts!" Sign at the Auckland GCSB Protest?
This pic was part of a NZ Herald Article yesterday. See the link below for the full story:
The GCSB bill is about to pass into law in the next few hours. The raid on our Privacy by the Dread Privateer John Key is almost complete.
It'll only be stopped in the House by some miracle.
Enjoy our last days to be somewhat free online.
Rodney Harrison: Wholesale spy power is precisely what GCSB bill means for Kiwis describes fairly clearly where John Key either doesn't understand his own legislation or is lying to New Zealanders about his legislation.
I know that nothing we do online is private. I've always assumed this was the case. But there were laws in place restricting wholesale data collecting, individual privacy, and that quaint little thing known as the Bill of Rights. There had been some protection.
Not any more.
New Zealand is turning a corner it doesn't need to and shouldn't.
My partner and I like to share the good news. Your comments are welcome.
