Again Adam refers readers to this

So why are we revisiting this, because at a recent appearance before a Parliamentary Select Committee, GCSB Head – Andrew Hampton is reported follows

The Director-General of the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) has warned against local elections going online, citing security concerns.

Andrew Hampton appeared alongside New Zealand Security Intelligence Service director-general Rebecca Kitteridge on Thursday at the Justice Select Committee where the pair was asked to comment on possible election interference.

The select committee was given a classified briefing from Kitteridge and Hampton after their public appearance, but before then the spy bosses disclosed that “interference in New Zealand’s elections by a state actor was, and remains, plausible”.

So can we finally kill off this stupid idea, please
