The PM and the rapper who sang about killing John Key

The Herald reported:

Avantdale Bowling Club’s Tom Scott has leaked his own album on file-sharing site We Transfer and revealed messages sent to him from Prime Minister about armed police.

Last night on his Twitter account, Scott posted a screenshot of direct messages sent between himself and Ardern concerning a trial of Armed Response Teams patrols being stationed in Counties Manukau, Waikato, and Canterbury.

In the messages alleged to be from the Prime Minister, she said:

“The trial they’ve been running around on call armed offender squads? The trial will end after a few months and then they’ll stop and go back to communities and talk about how it went. We can’t tell the police what to do operationally, but a few of us did meet with the Commissioner recently and share our views on it.”

She went on to say: “I’ve also said publicly (sic) many times, I don’t support the general arming of the police. Never will. Won’t happen while I’m in this job. That we do get a say in.”

Tom Scott is the guy who sung about wanting to kill John Key and rape his daughter.

Nice that the PM has time to privately DM him on significant public policy issues, yet routinely refuses to go on media shows such as Chris Lynch’s on NewstalkZB.
