Conroy’s filter? No! RUDD’S filter!

Chinese Democracy, brought to you by KRuddCo

While he is the driver du jour, let’s not forget that this stupid plan to mandatorily censor residential internet feeds is not Senator Conjob’s idea- it’s Kevin Bloody Rudd’s. For all the good that KRudd’s done since returning Labor from the political wilderness, it’s all fully undone with this draconian and authoritarian bullshit.

The next Federal elections are not really that far down the track, folks. It’s (again) KRudd’s election to lose. Pity to lose it on a single issue, but that’s where this trainwreck is headed.

Civil disobedience takes on a whole new meaning when you wrap a few internets around it.

Go get ’em weez!!!

I have this ill feeling that Steve Fielding has some deal with the government in exchange a the clean feed? Why else would they risk so much for something so precarious to their popularity?

While I don’t go in for many conspiracy theories, I don’t think I’d fall over dead if indeed it was found that KRudd had a deal with Mr Unrepresentative Swill. Nevertheless, without Xeno & the Greens, the filter will never make it through the Senate.

I’m pretty sure that the filter was originally Kim Beazley’s policy – although, ultimately, Rudd could put a stop to it if he wanted to.

The mandatory part is all Kevin’s.
