This brings us back to the subject of privacy. It is awful if people wonder needlessly whether someone is reading their private email, or decides they’d better not be involved in politics, or generally shrinks down and limits who they are because of an unnecessary fear of surveillance.
I have had my private e-mails read. They have twice appeared in books published by Nicky Hager.
I have considered quitting politics because of the fear of surveillance.
I’ve had spies put into my business to steal documents.
So pardon me if I have trouble reading the above without getting a bit angry.
