“we do not carry out wholesale collection of metadata”
…how can that be true when we now learn that the manner in which the 5 eyes work means exploiting wholesale collection of metadata???
The idea that NZ would be exempt from this mass surveillance is simply insane. John Key has either lied to the people of NZ or Ian Fletcher, his old school friend he appointed as GCSB Boss, is protecting him by not telling him.
John Key is either lying or he is ignorant. Neither option is what we demand from our Prime Minister’s role to be the first guardian of our civil liberties.
We are a stooge for the American’s and have become a mass surveillance state for the privilege of being a stooge. That needs to end this election.
