This was just sent to me by a friend of mine in Australia and I thought it a worthy enough cause to post it unedited on my blog here.
It's unfortunate that the labour party is still pushing the internet filtering technology, it will end up a huge waste of tax payers money and ultimately fail.
I sent an email to my federal member previously pointing out this and other issues, and he forwarded it to the good senator. I got back a load of political rhetoric in reply which never answered or addressed anything I pointed out.
The EFF Australia has setup a website with even more information on how this will be a waste of money, and what further implications on this will mean.
Everyone should be made aware of the bigger picture and how all the money will be wasted to appease a handful of Family First senators, and Family First's agenda for the country is quite scary so why the Labour party is pandering to them is anyone's guess.
