  • Sacha, in reply to Matthew Poole,

    a lot of email responses from ministers are now coming from @parliament.govt.nz addresses rather than the Ministerial Services mail system, presumably in a misguided attempt by the ministers to avoid those messages being exposed under the OIA

    Just like that hero of the unprincipled, Karl Rove.

  • FletcherB,

    Does he actually have the powers he exercised?

    He got the results he was looking for, so most evidently, he does...

    It's the same line of logic that claims the new laws don't give GCSB new powers... it just "clarifies" what they are already doing.

    If you do something thats currently illegal, and get away with it... does a law-change making it legal give you "new abilities"?

    Apparently not according to our esteemed PM...

    Next, raising the speed limit to 120 km/h doesnt change what you can do because every car sold for the last 40 years could already do that and more?

  • Rob Stowell,

    And in more media news, Murdoch possibly caught admitting he knew of bribery, and heading for more trouble with the rozers?
