Gerry Brownlee is above the law.

So, a member of the National government displayed a high level of arrogance and disregard for procedure and obedience of law that would usually result in swift arrest, incarceration at the cop shop and a heavy stomp from the justice system if it was committed by you or me. The bought and paid for mainstream media will be squirming as they try and work out a way to spin this now public display of complete and utter arrogance and disregard of procedure and law by one of the top guys on the team they are committed to promote. What happens next???

Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee's office has confirmed an investigation is under way into today's airport security breach.

Brownlee has denied barging past airport security, in an incident he has offered his resignation over.
