The Prime Minister has signalled the Government will look to introduce much tougher security laws after a review next year.
John Key said the Countering Terrorist Fighters Bill, due to be reported back to Parliament today, was just the beginning.
He said a full review of security settings would consider broader changes to intelligence-gathering and counter-terrorism.
Mr Key said it would potentially look much further than the current legislation before Parliament.
You got that?
This is why it is so important for Labour to oppose the bill: to make clear public disquiet and strip Key of his self-proclaimed "moral mandate" for more spying. Instead, they're collaborating in it. And this is why they're useless as an opposition, and will be more useless as a government.
I will not vote for a party which supports spying. Neither should you.
