PM On Disappearing Electricity 'N' Security Risks

Scoop Audio: Disappearing Electricity 'N' Disappearing Security Risks

In a longish press conference that traversed the appalling weather, resulting electricity crisis in Auckland and deported foreign chaps there was to be no termination of 30+ citizens of Aotearoa by black clad enforcers of a youthful science fiction utopia.
