Fuck Andrew Little

And while we're on the topic of Andrew Little and his pro-spy agenda, there's this lovely bit:

The US's metadata-driven campaign of drone strikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen has been found to constitute extrajudicial and arbitrary killing by the UN. Insofar as the bombing of Iraq and Syria is aimed at executions, then the UN is likely to reach similar conclusions (they may also have something to say about the indiscriminate nature of such attacks). Plus of course there are serious questions as to whether providing targeting information to allow people to be killed is consistent with the BORA's affirmation of the right to life. but Little doesn't seem to care about any of that. If the US and the spies want it, he supports it. Which is why I can never support him as Prime Minister.
