What is Bridges didling about on?Theres a good interview of Simon Bridges around how Paula Bennett was asked as the minister of police to make changes to the gun laws because "there will be a mass shooting" in 2015. Paula Bennet bowed to pressure from the gun lobby and rejected seven key changes.
Bridges is such a weak human being didling over the changes right now disgusts me.
This is not the time for politician waffle and not committing to the prime minister outright.
Most Muslims are very worried that NZ's bureaucratic avoidance will see a slow response to the kinds of changes they need right now.
I cannot imagine mainstream NZ diddling if they were worrying this week that another nutter might go them again. Its a big releif to me that he is not in charge of this.
If he tries anything but agree to law changes then his days are numbered as a politician.
Bennett made minimal changes to gun laws, however the current labour party Police Minister Stuart Nash said Bennett got it 100% right. Looking at the recommendations you would have a strong argument for 'what the fuck were you thinking?'
The sad thing is that I think NZ can be naive and/or short sighted on a lot of issues. This happens to be one of them. If we had introduced the recommendations in 1997....

If Thorp Report acted on, top lawyer says terror attack would not be as deadly.
