    Thinking about NZ’s current overall immigration settings, are they fair on: NZ Citizens 22% Yes 44%No and the rest unsure
    On a scale of 0 to 10, where 10 means you think immigration into New Zealand is an entirely positive thing, and 0 means you think immigration into New Zealand is an entirely negative thing, how would you describe your views towards immigration? Negative 23% Positive 34 Unsure 45%
    Is an on-line survey.

    Question….. if the GCSB confirm they spied on Grosers rivals for the WTO job, what would prevent them spying on opposition politicians?

    • Because gathering foreign intelligence is legal, spying on local politicians isn’t.
