The umm… err… Communications Minister

This guy is in charge of our interwebs. Doesn’t he sound tech savvy… perhaps he is trying to protect us all from the scary spams with his big filter.

Scarily, he’s also the “Communications Minister” and this is the transcript of what he says in that grab:

“There‚Äôs a staggering number of Australians being in having their computers infected at the moment, up to 20,000, uh, can regularly be getting infected by these spams, or scams, that come through, the portal.”


On the one hand I can understand why a group like the ACL would support internet filtering – but really, Christians, of all people, should be against censorship. Maybe they think it’s ok so long as they’re in the vocal majority – censorship’s great when you’re doing the censoring, not so great when you’re on the other end of it.
