Parliament’s security and intelligence committee, chaired by Mr Key, is expected to accept public submissions on the bill, but hearings will be held in private for security reasons.
“It won’t be in the public interest to have it open, for a whole bunch of reasons I don’t want to go into,” Mr Key said.
Yup, that’s good enough for me. “We’re stripping your democratic rights and invading your privacy, but you’re not really entitled to know why, and besides, we can’t really be arsed telling you.”
I can’t wait to see the back of this lazy, arrogant arsehole.
