Message to ACT…

… is expanding the powers of the GCSB to monitor, and store data on every man, woman, and child in this country what you meant about “getting the state out of our lives” and “smaller government”?!

    Interesting isn’t it Frank – one of the things that has always astounded me with ‘right’ leaning people is they can’t seen right in front of their faces – that their own political leaders are far more ‘nanny state’ than they ever accused Labour of. Anti-smacking has nothing on what Key’s government has brought in – so far….

    Got it in one, Neil.

    I wonfer how National supporters will react if information gathered by the GCSB is ever used against them. The hardest part, I suspect, will be reminding them that a NATIONAL government enacted this legislation, and not a Labour-led government.

    Just as it as a National government that abolished the Mines Inspectorate in 1991/92 with their de-regulation policies at the time. We know how that little experiment in de-regulation ended.
