It looks like discord has broken out between Labour and the Greens. Hurrah.
The greenies are in a tizz because none of them will be sitting on Parliament’s intelligence and security committee. Hurrah again. The public can sleep more safely in their beds knowing their security is in safe hands.
It’s all the result of Labour leader Andrew Little shutting the minor parties out of a place at the table where the closed-door committee will oversee a major review of the security services this year.
The Greens – boohoo – say Little has broken the law, because he didn’t consult with any other party leaders before selecting his foreign affairs spokesman David Shearer.
