'Open Letter' to 'Independent' MP Peter Dunne: Penny Bright

7 August 2013

'Open Letter' to 'Independent' MP Peter Dunne:
From Auckland Mayoral candidate Penny Bright:

"Why are you continuing to support the GCSB Bill"?

Dear Peter,

You didn't like your private correspondence being surveilled, so please be consistent and do not support this GCSB legislation, which will allow spying on New Zealanders, which is not currently the case.

Are you aware of the following considered view of the New Zealand law Society?

Tuesday, 6 August 2013, 3:48 pm
Press Release: New Zealand Law Society
MEDIA RELEASE – For immediate use, 6 August 2013

GCSB Bill remains flawed despite proposed changes

Proposed changes to the GCSB Bill represent minor improvements but do not address the fundamental flaws in the bill and the legislation should not proceed, the New Zealand Law Society says.

Please do NOT be a hypocrite?

Kind regards,

Penny Bright
'Anti-privatisation /anti-corruption' campaigner

2013 Auckland Mayoral candidate

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
