No more buddy buddy

John Key, the NZ Prime Minister said in a recent interview that he thought  NZers were more interested in snapper than the GCSB Bill.

This bill makes it legal for the GCSB (a NZ govt spy agency) to spy on NZers - previously it was only allowed to spy on foreign nationals in NZ. The government is also moving to tighten snapper quotas for casual fishermen.

In January last year, the GCSB illegally spied on Kim Dotcom, who is a NZ resident.

More info: Does the new GCSB Bill give them the power to spy on New Zealanders?
