All Jacinda’s said is (based on exact same parameters of other countries exporting Russian spies) there aren’t any unofficial spies amongst 17 embassy staff-which means Russia doesn’t care enough about us to send unofficial spies.
Can we now get to the Chinese Spy inside National?
The last time we blindly followed Britain into claims of weapons of mass destruction we invaded Iraq, I’m not saying Putin isn’t capable of using a nerve agent to kill a spy, he most certainly is, I’m saying that to date we have had no independent verification whatsoever of what has happened here and unless Britain is holding back evidence they have, it makes no sense rushing into start geopolitical fights.
Ironically this entire Russian spy bogeyman actually strengthens China. Not only is everyone forgetting that there is a Chinese spy inside the National Party, by excluding Russia from buying excess dairy we are economically at the mercy of China. Watch to see how China starts friction using that when the Government moves to stop foreigners buying land here.
