Top concern I’m hearing is NOT the operational foobahs of intelligence gatherers, but the lack of appropriate arms length between the PM and his ministerial role in/over said agency, and their lawbreakers – for whatever reason serious or slight.
Recalled was advice former PM Lange gave Mr Key at learning the latter’s ambition to become one of his successors — reportedly “don’t do it!” In one’s mind for its wisdom relative a taken role of business executive(aka commercial relations mainly) in respect of consequences arising in a small nation’s democratic state with but unicameral configuration. The PM and his department, in such a case, ought rise to a more stately aspect. Lonely, sure. Out there, sure. BUT importantly, arms length. Trust builder.
Trust me, for if nothing is done to correct the misalignment created I believe by the PM’s immediate predecessor then political damage will result from this least obvious component.
