Awfully nice of him to use FYI, but I suspect you'll be hearing from the government departments soon (if indeed you had such correspondence)

It would be along the lines of "dude, did we even talk to you?"
hearing from the government departments soon
It's an OIA request nothing about them happens "soon"

It's due Monday week.
I note one of mr Stratford's earliest questions on Twitter back in 2010 - must've thrilled his 24 followers
What happens if you find your livinging in meth lab
6:40 PM - 8 Jun 2010
Well I'm guessing he can answer that one himself now
- looks like he did find a living in Meth Labs!
operate his business in the objectionable and exploitative manner
He's more than likely pissed he cant keep doing that. Such people like to see conspiracies working against them. And he does have form seeing false positives.
Looks like they've just provided a reply to the list of questions on Fyi.
Miles Stratford is cut from the same cloth as the war-on-the-poor racket that's rife in America - for-profit prisons, child internment camps, expropriation dressed up as proceeds-of-crime law, you name it.
I'd be interested to know if those Meth detection' boxes that were being touted actually work , and how?
Or were they just selling a false sense of security in a tin.

If you mean the ones that monitored for meth use, I'd be amazed if they didn't work, TBH. Quite a lot of gas and vapour come off from vaporizing such drugs - the user can literally see the vapour cloud forming and after they exhale it as well. But now the real question is: So what if they work? The evidence that meth use is contaminating properties has now effectively been debunked, so the whole point of having a real time device, at significant ongoing cost, monitoring something that's effectively not important, has been killed.
Monitoring for meth production seems like it could still be possibly worth doing, but I don't think detecting meth itself would be necessary - it's the known dangerous industrial chemicals that are the real problem, and I would again be amazed if the detection of that isn't pretty straightforward. But the meth production numbers for house owners is not even vaguely on the scale of meth use, and it sounds like it's naturally diminishing anyway as most of the product is directly imported.

Indeed they have!
And they've given him a flea in his ear.
A very large flea!
I particularly enjoyed the comment "neither 'advice' nor 'reality' " (regarding Miles' incorrect assumption that Australian law applied to use as well as manufacture).
He looks like he doesn't have a plan b for the future.
Trying to cling on to the meth buster gravy train.
I feel that he's wallowing in a big pool of entitlement and insincerity in the full knowledge of the distress in his wake.
Begone Sir and if you can, please reflect on the mayhem you've caused because your business model has created substantial pain to those least able to cope with it.
Awfully nice of him to use FYI
Yeah I thought so too. I like FYI because it shows people they can ask questions when they mightn't have previously known, but it doesn't tend to be popular with journos and lobbyists for good reason.
Unless he's ignorant, is there any of motivation for Miles Stratford to use FYI, where everyone can see what he's asking and what he gets back before he's even had a chance to digest it?
The next industry volley: http://www.mtianz.org.nz/press-release.html
I wonder who the "most vulnerable" are, that are being endangered? Shareholders of meth testing companies?
