In the Eastblock the government agencies responsible for spying on, torturing, prisoning and killing people who had the audacity to criticise the ruling elite all had exhalted names too.
In East Germany the common folk knew them as the Stasi Or Staat Sicherheits polizei (State security Police) and they were run by secretive groups of unelected men.
John Key calls his secretive group of men the committee of “free thinkers” and you can rest assured that they will not be constrained by little irksome limitations such as due process or that other quaint idea “Democracy”. So here is without further ado our own home grown Stasi.
