So the chief spy who briefed Key on Dotcom just happens to be Key’s old school mate whom Key vouches for???????
I’m sorry, what?
PM plays down friendship with GCSB boss
Prime Minister John Key has downplayed the closeness of his relationship with GCSB director Ian Fletcher after Labour’s Grant Robertson suggested the two men were friends of long standing before Mr Fletcher’s appointment.
But Green MP Steffan Browing claims Mr Key has had a close ongoing friendship with Mr Fletcher which has “sinister” implications for the oversight of the spy agency.
…by not telling his old school mate who helped get him the job about the spying on Dotcom, Fletcher protected the PM by creating deniability. Is this the sort of Government we want? Riven by cronyism and self-interest masquerading as the public good?
There are enough questions about how our Police force allowed themselves to become puppets for the US and how captured our Government seem to be by corporate Hollywood and America’s drive for a TPPA that will seriously erode our economic sovereignty.
There are even more questions about how our own security apparatus managed to become involved when they knew the spying was illegal and how the same clowns involved in previous over steps in Police authority were involved in this one.
And let’s not forget all the times John Key seems to have brain faded over when and when he wasn’t briefed on Kim Dotcom.
Now we need to add to that mountain of questions the childhood relationship with the Chief Spy whom Key appointed and whom provided Key with his deniability.
Don’t give me that ‘it’s a small country we all know each other’ crap. Key’s old school mate is made the Chief Spy??? That’s not knowing a mate in a contract or having a family member appointed somewhere, it’s the Chief bloody Spy!
Those two should not know each other in any way shape or form. Are we appreciating the vast amount of power being handed into a small group of people who are mates?
The Prime Minister and the GCSB director should not be old school mates. That this has only come out now shows how questionable it was in the first place.
This stinks to high heaven, and everyone knows it.
