Fine day to protest a spy base in Waihopai! Seriously, it’s time to stop helping Donald Trump (or anyone else) unlawfully spy on our Asia Pacific neighbours ?

This is quite revealing. A Green MP is accusing the Government she votes for with confidence and supply of illegal spying – breaking the law.
Jacinda Ardern is the Minister for National Security and Intelligence. So are the Greens saying the PM is overseeing unlawful spying?
Andrew Little is Minister responsible for the GCSB and Waihopai. Are the Greens saying he is conducting unlawful spying?
The Greens have three Ministers in Government. Are the Greens saying they are part of a Government that conducts illegal spying?
How can Parliament have confidence in James Shaw (just appointed to the Intelligence and Security Committee), when one of his MPs is smearing the Government and the intelligence agencies by claiming they are breaking the law.
