Has anyone else commented on the contradictory nature of these policies?
On the one hand they are proposing spending billions to 'improve the broadband services provision' to Australians.
On the other hand they want to put 'filters' (read mandatory censorship) in place which would more than negate any supposed improvements!
If this censorship filter proposal goes through the current Government should be renamed the LUDD government nat the Rudd government.
This proposal, allied with other knee-jerk overreactions like the Henson photograph beat-up make me wonder what the people overreacting have to hide.....
