Shocker

Written by 

The Hound is shocked and dismayed at the support by certain political figures for the draconian and totally unnecessary NAIT ‘search and surveillance’ regulations rushed into law by the Coalition Government.

This will give MPI powers to search farmers’ farms and houses and take anything they want without the need for a warrant. Your old mate finds it ironic that the Green Party, who would be outraged if the same laws were used against political activists or criminals, supported this move. Even more disappointing is that the ‘party of the provinces’ – NZ First – also backed it. It was embarrassing listening to NZ First list MP Mark Patterson’s lack of understanding of the bill and his anaemic weak justification for it. As a mate of the Hound says, “Patterson would be out of his depth in a bird bath”. Ouch.
