Tony Ryall replaces Peter Dunne

Super Hospital Spy Tony Ryall gets top secret role. 

Tony Ryall MP for the Bay of Plenty has just been added to the Governments top security committee. He was nominated to this Committee by John Key after he dumped Peter Dunne as a Minister outside of Cabinet. John Key told the parliament that Peter Dunne could not remain on that committee because he was no longer a cabinet minister, that was a lie…you don’t have to be a cabinet minister to be on that committee and to prove the point David Shearer and Russel Norman are members of that committee along with believe it or not John Banks.

This committee is the only official oversight to the all powerful GCSB and SIS arms of government. The rules lay down that any member of parliament can be on that committee…but John Key picked Tony Ryall without discussion of the committee members. Key of course chairs the committee. There was no need in legal terms to dump Peter Dunne…unless of cause John Keys mis-trusts him.

Now we all realise that Peter Dunne through his contact with Fairfax reporter Andrea Vance and the many emails that passed between them and Peter Dunne’s refusal to reveal what was in some of those emails led to him being sacked as a minister. But at the same time Peter Dunne had stated that he did not leak the report that clearly showed that the GCSB carried out illegal spying on NZ residents and citizens which the Prime Minister was made look a bit of a fool especially to US Security agencies that he admires so much and of cause to New Zealanders. His brain fades over the various stages in this on-going saga of capricious stuff-ups is now well recorded.

What this means is that yet another lie is being told in this saga of lies…key is sacking Peter Dunne because he no longer trusts him…but the key is, does Key know who did leak the report…answer maybe yes or maybe no…you decide, is it in fact some other minister who he wants to protect, that I would suggest is a real question that needs answering.

Regardless of the doubt that remains Key appointed Tony Ryall and I consider that he picked Tony Ryall because of his ability to understand the workings of parliament’s most secret committee. You see Tony Ryall has had a lot of practice at undercover work. You see Tony Ryall is very much a micro manager and some years ago he dressed in a long black coat, wore a baseball cap, dark shades and a false moustache and slunk around various Emergency hospital treatment centres spying on the staff working in those centres, all the HBO’s were his target, as he recorded their efforts and then reported them in to their bosses…

He has always been a ‘target’ sort of a person which makes him an ideal person to deal with the SIS and GCSB because they deal in targets. Targets like you and I.  

And now there is a new element, the US whistle blower Edward Snowden has tossed a massive spanner in the works and put international spooks on the spot. His brave choice must have been huge in that he immediately put his life at risk…the US doesn’t treat whistle blowers kindly as history proves; they lock them up without trial and in some cases actually murder them.

This 29 year-old analyst just gave up his whole life -- his girlfriend, his job, and his home -- to blow the whistle on the US government's shocking PRISM program -- which has been reading and recording our emails, Skype messages, Facebook posts and phone calls for years.

When Bradley Manning passed this kind of data to Wikileaks, the US threw him naked into solitary confinement in conditions that the UN called "cruel, inhumane and degrading".

The authorities and press are deciding right now how to handle this scandal. If millions of us stand with Edward in the next 48 hours, it will send a powerful statement that he should be treated like the brave whistleblower that he is, and it should be PRISM, and not Edward, that the US cracks down on:
