John Key has dismissed the Green party call for an inquiry into the raid on Kim Dotcom’s mansion by saying that the Greens call for an inquiry on virtually everything.
“It’s sort of the boy who cried wolf a few too many times I think,” the prime minister said on TVNZ Breakfast this morning.
Is he right?
Here are some of the things Green MPs have demanded independent inquiries into (some have been successful) over the last 18 months.
Hydraulic fracturing (successful).
Good to see a journalist doing research to substantiate a claim. That is indeed a fair number of inquiries demanded.
The sad thing is that the Greens will ignore the results of an inquiry, if it clashes with their beliefs. Take for example the Royal Commission on Genetic Engineering.Tags: Greens, Toby Manhire
