The latest Fairfax (SMH, The Age) online poll asking whether the government ought to filter the internet has so far had an incredible 88,118 responses, of which 99% responded: "N-O".
But does the Minister In Charge Of Turning Australia Into A Communist Dictatorship give a rat's arse?
Course not. He's still as determined as ever that Australia will have a mandatory internet filter, no matter what the public thinks of it.
Vox populi? What's that?? Here's proof that representative democracy is a total sham when you have arrogant Ministers pursuing their own agenda with scant regard for what the voters actually think or want.
