John Key speaking this morning in defense of the GCSB bill–
“In New Zealand there are people who’ve been trained for al Qaeda camps who operate out of New Zealand, who are in contact with people overseas, who have gone off to Yemen and other countries to train… I’m sorry, but that’s the real world,…
“..if people don’t believe there’s the odd person in New Zealand who presents a potential threat, either on the international stage or in New Zealand, unfortunately they’re wrong….”
“…People like this were why the new GCSB law was needed.”
Wow, its not exactly what Greg Shackleton said but its getting close. Lucky he wasn’t in Invercargill when he said it, or the local Stalinist Bluecaps would be coming after him.
