I really don’t think I need to add anything much to this video of John Key on tonight’s Campbell Live.
Asked about the GCSB Bill by a CL reporter, Rebecca Wright, Key doesn’t want to talk about it, because he says New Zealanders are more interested in the snapper quota. When he is told CL will be featuring a programme on the GCSB Bill this week, Key dismisses CL as presenting mis-information from,
experts that turn up on your show that aren’t really experts, and don’t know what they are talking about.
Key then declines to turn up on CL to help inform them, and says most New Zealanders support his GCSB Bill.
John Campbell says that some of the people CL has had talking about the Bill include The Law Society, Geoffrey Palmer, constitutional law experts and Dame Anne Salmond.
Can he show any more contempt for New Zealanders and our (slowly disappearing) democracy?
In contrast to Key’s dismissive and contemptuous attitude, Campbell Live tonight asked Kiwis in the far north and far south of NZ for their views on Key’s GCSB Bill. Campbell claims they didn’t know what people were going to say in advance, and that they interviewed a random selection of people. Campbell was surprised about how many of these people were quite well informed on the Bill, and had a view on it.
