It's been a while since we've heard about Don Brash and those 'stolen' emails.
I wonder why there has been no developments, why no-one has been prosecuted? Perhaps, based on current experience, the alleged perpetrators have that invaluable 'get out of jail' card- Liarbour Party membership.
Anyway, it's good to see National beefing up its e-security with John Boy been given the country's first single-user license to use an email encryption service from Software Associates, as reported by Computerworld today.
The Opposition leader accepted the gift with good grace, even as one audience member proclaimed it a "Brash thing to do".
We can smile and make the odd joke, but to paraphase the judge from the Philip Field case, such corruption goes to the heart of New Zealand as a democracy.
Unanswered questions remain, who broke into John Key's Parnell house, who was rifling through his rubbish, and yes, who stole Don Brash's emails and passed them on to Winston Peters and Nicky Hagar? Employees of Dear Leader? The SIS? The Police? Private investigators employed by Liarbour? Who?
While those unanswered questions remain, let us hope John Key's messages are safe from prying eyes.
