whether she has an SIS file.
The NZ Security Intelligence Service has apparently been compiling dossiers on protesters and political activists. For decades.
Chris Trotter thinks any self-respecting lefty agitator should consider the existence of such a file on them to be a badge of honour.
Like MP Keith Locke, The Tabby started attending protests at a very young age. She admits to only ever being small fry on the barricades, and has taken part only in peaceful civil disobedience. Luckily she has only ever been jostled and yelled at rather than batoned or arrested.
Schroedinger has given the situation some thought and delivered his opinion:
"You were probably mentioned in despatches. I doubt whether you have your own file."
