Why are the sleepy hobbits giving the Pork Board the power to spy on us?



What most NZers don't understand is that these spying powers aren't just for the Police. Every State Agency that has enforcement responsibilities can use them. That means that Inland Revenue, the Meat Board, Overseas Investment Office, Accident Compensation Corporation, Environment Risk Management Authority, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the Pork Industry Board can all break into our homes and plant spy cameras.

Who is a threat to the Pork Board? Vegetarians? Why the Christ would you want them to have the powers to spy? The Governments response to this has been that a Minister will need to sign off on this, but as we can see from John Key - he signed off on the BMWs 6 times, and still claimed he had no idea what he was signing off on.

A Ministers signature is not a safeguard.

Look I know the RWC means alot to many of you, but how can you keep giving John Key a hospital pass on this stuff?

Actually, it wasn't Robert's line.

Actually, Roberts wasn't the first with that line:
