No view

At the very end of her post-Cabinet press conferance today, somebody asked the Prime Minister for her view on the Law Commission's recommendation to repeal sedition. Her response?

I have no view on it at all. I've never read the law of sedition. I've taken no interest in it whatsoever.

Perhaps she should have. If she'd paid attention to it, she would know that it is an unjust law, which counts among its primary victims the original leadership of her own party, including two of the first three Labour Prime Ministers, as well as many others who opposed injustice or advocated for a better New Zealand. As a left-wing politician, you'd think those would be excellent reasons for her to have a view on it.


But she hasn taken an interest in it, hasn't she ... she can't possibly have not noticed the kerfuffle with Selwyn was arrested and convicted. Her answer yesterday was just another lie.
