So surprise surprise. A journalist is being spied on by Parliamentary Services, apparently no “knows”, and the PM is “disappointed”. Someone needs to hang for this. Worse yet, we have journalist Jon Stephenson being spied on by the NZ military in Afghanistan, and likely being tracked by the SAS. The Government has effectively declared war on the reporting media, and I full well expect this disturbing trend to continue.
