The Acting Prime Minister has reluctantly accepted increased security when out in public, Newsroom reports. Grant Robertson doesn’t like having a security tail when out in public but the changing nature of threats against MPs has changed that. In July, Robertson had DPS (the police diplomatic protection squad) travel with him after online chatter raised the threat level against the senior MP. “Those sorts of experiences are not great and DPS were there to protect me, but they can’t possibly be there to protect all politicians from any political party,” he said. “We’re all going to have to think about how we run a campaign in that environment.”
