You all know me by now. Someone accused of sexual abuse and there I am, banner in hand, calling for someone's willy to be chopped. However, my skepticism of US policy far exceeds that fear.
How convenient is it to suddenly have these "sexual assault" charges made against a man whose exposed International bullshit that we never knew about?
I mean, these people in power (that you and I pay for) are apparently doing shit behind our backs. Don't we have a right to know, to hold them accountable? Don't we want to know why "Joe Bloggs" is so fucked off he feels determined to blow something or someone up? How do we know it's not because of one of the many "leaked" documents exposing a "certain" Government? Okay, it's a little far fetched for good old anti-nuke New Zealand, but (last I heard, this is our planet too right?) and if some Government, somewhere, is screwing with people who have the passion and determination to make my life and that of my child a frigging misery, don't I have the right to know why?
What is so wrong with transparency?
I live by one simple rule: If you can't do it in front of me, you shouldn't be doing it at all.
John Pilger, a much respected Australia journalist said: "They (the powers that be) have read our emails for such a long time. Isn't it time, we read theirs?" And he makes a bloody valid point.
