Sir/Madam,

Our illustrious Dear Leader, the Rt Hon John Key, seems somewhat vexed by cyber threats originating from overseas and directed at our “clean and green” nation. He said in Parliament on 21 August,

“There will be times where a serious cyber intrusion is detected against a New Zealander and the GCSB will then need to look at content – that’s why the law allows that. But that should be the end point, not the starting point.”

If the threats to our “100% Pure” country originate from overseas, one is left with a tantalising question; why is the  GCSB and Related Legislation Amendment Bill, and related  Telecommunications (Interception Capability and Security) Amendment Bill, designed to spy on New Zealanders?

Shouldn’t the GCSB be focusing on external “threats” rather than on us?
After all, wasn’t that  the original purpose of the GCSB when it was first formed in 1977?
