Let’s say it slowly.
We. Have. To. Spy. On. New. Zealanders. Because. Someone. Tried. To. Hack. For. Weapons. Of. Mass. Destruction. ? ? ?
Sweet baby Jesus, when Key had to cough up some bullshit justification as to why he’s going to let the GCSB spy on NZers for the SIS and the NZ Police, you would have thought he would have put some effort in right?
What do we get instead? Some absurd claim that someone tried to hack NZ for WMDs??? That’s the farcical excuse he’s come up with to spy on NZers? That someone is trying to build WMDs?
The terrorism threat in New Zealand is low but people have tried to use our technology to build weapons of mass destruction, Key said.
We have to spy on NZers for WMDs like we had to invade Iraq for WMDs. When you consider the vast new search and surveillance powers Key has already handed over to the Police, what possible excuse could he manufacture to justify turning the Eye of Mordor upon us?
WM bloody Ds.
What can you possibly say about a country that accepts this? Key’s claim that WMDs are the reason we need to spy on NZers is about as credible as his justification that he had to stop the Epsom Tea Pot tapes getting out because it might lead to more youth suicides if parents were recorded talking about their depressed children.
I’m getting the feeling that Key could just fart into the microphone as an answer during these press conferences now and many NZers would nod in agreement.
Honestly, this has become so farcical I’m waiting for Key to start arguing the need to privatize 49% of the GCSB so corporations can access our world class spying organization.
