how are you doing? Look, terribly sorry about the despicable manner our Government has been played like puppets by the Americans in their new Pacific cold war territorial gestures to China.
Good luck in Corporate Hollywood's campaign against you. Their hypocrisy to first try and work with you before launching a copyright infringement case trumped up as a terrorism money laundering charge knows no end.
And a final apology for the Prime Minister. He's a bit of a dick.
I appreciate you are a busy chap, so I'll cut to the chase, please sue our Government.
I know you have come out in public and said you don't want to burden the NZ taxpayer with costs against our Government illegally spying upon you, but I ask you to consider why you should sue our Government while providing a solution to the ethical question of burdening the NZ taxpayer.
You should sue our Government Kim because vast damages are the only thing that will force them to reign in the power of the GCSB. Let's be frank, the only reason they have been caught out is because you have had the resources well beyond ordinary NZers to catch them out with the best legal minds in the game. If it wasn't for your ability to fund such a brilliant team, these abuses of power would never have seen the light of day.
Let's take the Government and the GCSB at their word shall we? Let's ignore all the evidence that Key and the Police and the most powerful intelligence apparatus the state is responsible for all innocently spied on you. I know that's a joke to even ask when the evidence is stacked as high as it is, with I'm sure much more to come, but let's take them at their word and it's just gross incompetence. Sue them. It is only when they face vast damages, (the larger, the better), that Government will be forced to change the culture that allows these abuses.
You've helped highlight those abuses Kim, you are the one now that can force change by taking them to Court and suing them.
As for whatever damages you take from the Government and that burden it places upon the taxpayer, give all the damages awarded to charity. Give it to the people of Christchurch, give it to the 270 000 kids living in poverty, give it to the Save TVNZ7 protest you turned up to (don't give it to John Banks).
If the issue is the cost to the taxpayer, return that money to the taxpayer while forcing the Government to object our spies to far more oversight.
It's a win/win for NZ.
