I blogged a photo yesterday of a gruff man who kept trying to block the media from filming any dissent to the Government.
Turns out the man is a senior union official, and in this photo in the Dom Post you can see he is technically assaulting a student, despite the fact the student is on the campus he has paid fees to attend.
And no he was not doing it to protect the PM. I was only a few metres away (and may have even suggested to young David he slips past me to get a better view) and the PM had a large contingent of police officers who were very alert and would have not hestitated to act if they viewed Mr Cassidy as a threat.
Also note that the Dominion Post reports how many of the student supporters were in fact from Labour’s parliamentary research unit. I am sure they were all on their lunch break.
