The Herald reports: #snowdenNZ : The price of the Five Eyes club: Mass spying on friendly nations
More from mickysavage at The Standard: NZ spies on its Pacific neighbours and The Intercept: New Zealand spies on neighbours in secret “Five Eyes” global surveillance.
Meanwhile, Shihad had this to say …
The Herald poll on their article asks How do you feel about revelations the GCSB is spying on Pacific neighbours? At the time of writing, the responses were:
- 42% “Incensed. This is unacceptable”
- 51% “I’m fine with it”
- 7% “I don’t believe the revelations are true”
I suspect that the 51% are people who won’t really give a damn about our government’s spying until they find out Hayley Westenra’s phone got tapped, or that the GCSB has known the identity of Suzie the waitress since 1995.
But that 7% should worry John Key. It looks like people just aren’t buying the “Nicky Hager’s just a lying liar person who lies” line.
