NewstalkZB has reported on the attack on the PM's electorate office, and I was interested in this paragraph:
It is the second time the prime minister's Electoral Office has been targeted by vandals. Right-wing activist tim selwyn took to the office with an axe in November 2004. He was later jailed for willful damage, publishing a seditious statement about the act and fraud.
Now labels are never that useful at the best of times, especially when it comes to Tim 🙂
But considering the 2004 brick incident was to protest the Foreshore & Seabed Act, labelling it as the work of a right-wing activist is somewhat misleading. If one has to use a label I would say a Maori sovereignty activist.
Incidentally I am quoted on Radio NZ criticising this attack.
