The Hobbit Law: Revisited

The legal atrocity of the to-be-repealed Hobbit Law is (belatedly) getting international attention via the world of Youtube:

Lindsay Ellis may be surprised to learn that the situation was actually worse than she realises. Namely that Peter Jackson was trying to reverse a certain inconvenient court case, and that Warner Brothers and the union had already reached an agreement at the time John Key’s Government rammed through these employment law changes – and the Government knew about it.

So, yes, Jackson and Key are worse than the video makes out. It’s still worth watching though.
