    Wut?

    I had not encountered Liz Shaw before. She’s amazing!

    She seems to have the ability to get the wrong end of the stick on pretty much any issue you care to choose.

    On child poverty:

    Child poverty – how about getting people employed and off welfare rather than wasting time talking about something which does not actually affect the average NZer,

    GCSB:

    Do none of the radio broadcasters or Labour actually realise that there is a mole in the organisation and that person probably spoke to Nicky Hager, does nobody realise that someone within the organisation has breached security? Does nobody want to hold that person accountable?

    Not only that, it is NOT important, and it is bloody naive to think that the GCSB doesn’t spy on NZ citizens. They wouldn’t be doing their job if they only spied within their limitations. This information should not have even been released to the public as national security is at risk, and why is the mole not being held accountable. I cannot believe the absolute level of ignorance from radio announcers and it is seriously frustrating me which is why it’s taken me so long to rant about it, but I cannot take it any longer.

    John Key’s pre-election radio show on Radio Live:

    I find it really insulting that I, along with others, have studied, and are studying, yet untrained people are stealing our jobs.

    Euthanasia (I had trouble choosing which paragraph to excerpt here):

    My final point and this one will be brief because there’s not a lot to say on the matter. Euthanasia is legalised murder. A few years ago I had a cat who was three years old, her name was Chrissy, and she was the daughter of another of my cats, Inca. Due to physical trauma when she was a kitten, she must have developed a head injury and been left with a psychological condition. It was so bad at one point we made the decision to have her euthanased, and took her home and buried her I believe. Looking back, we could have taken her to the vet and asked for a course of medication. We could have looked after her to the point where she got better, but we didn’t even try? Now imagine this for a second. That’s guilt from having a CAT euthanased, imagine how much worse that would be for a human? You would be kicking yourself thinking it was murder, and quite honestly, when you make the decision to end someone’s life, no matter what the circumstances, it is murder.

    It’s like WTF is her calling in life.

    I see she’s “Team Leader/News Writer at Australian Associated Press” and is working towards a Masters degree. What’s her professional work like?

    No! She'd get confused about the X and do the wrong kind of audition. No one need ever see that again.

    lol, she is lizshaw25 on trademe. i read/post there from time to time and she's often promoting that new conservative party in the opinions/politics board.

    on this MSD debacle, to Keith: fantastic work, what you've lifted the lid on is mind-boggling, thank you.

    She absolutely needs her own TV show. Maybe with Paul Holmes and Henry for a dissenting view?

  • Steve Barnes,

    Oh, I had to look. Oh well I figured I should comment on her blog but then discovered you had to be the member of her "team" to comment. So I thought why waste the RSI of typing so I post my comment here...

    You say "The purpose of this blog is to offer alternative viewpoints on each of these privacy and security breaches and raise questions that have not yet been asked by the mainstream media." and then you lost me at... "I support Prime Minister John Key, Nick Smith..."
    But, like watching a train wreck, I kept reading.
    Yes, sometimes security gets a bit over the top but I would rather have that than a free for all, can you imagine how you would feel if you discovered the bank had allowed someone to draw down your account because "they said they were you"?
    You then go on...
    "Instead of crucifying the MSD shouldn't we be looking at ourselves and our lack of morals and decency?"
    Well yes, that would be nice but I won't hold my breath while people, such as yourself, feel the need to point the finger at those you suspect might have something to do with something you don't approve of, your reference to Hagar is a case in point.
    Our Ministers and their Ministries owe a duty of care to their clients (even though this may not be enshrined in law) and when they fail in this, the people that expose them are to be thanked not pilloried.
