Key is so desperate to avoid scrutiny of the GCSB mass surveillance Bill, he’s throwing up as many smokescreens as he can to divert attention.
First he is going on and on and on about the fish catch. I wish NZers cared about their civil rights as much as they cared about their bloody recreational fishing rights, I’m waiting for Key to announce an Orewa speech ‘one fishing law for all’ to overshadow GCSB legislation.
We’ve seen this tactic a thousand times, National announce some crazy policy that is to the right of Caligula and lo and behold National pull it back just a little so it looks like they’ve listened.
Remember mining on Great Barrier when they were never going to actually mine on Great Barrier?
The other bullshit nonsense that Key is suddenly demanding we avert our attention to, is of all things, the questionable need to change our flag?
If Key is looking for inspiration, how about this suggestion to commemorate the manufactured crisis at the Hobbit where we sold out our labour laws for a corporation…
…of course if Key does ram the GCSB legislation through, our flag will end up being this one…
…I appreciate that the sleepy hobbits of NZ are pretty sleepy, but I just can’t believe they can’t see through this sudden need to change the flag, reduce fishing catches and the desire for John Key to announce national security threats on MoreFM.
The final chance to fight this GCSB mass surveillance Bill is Monday 19th, 7pm @ the Auckland Town Hall, streamed live here for free on The Daily Blog.
Let’s show this clown that we are not all so easily led.
