Full speed ahead and torp the damn pedoes!

My last blog was an open letter to Senator Stephen Conroy, asking, nay, imploring his Ministerial-ness to give up the misguided and ill-conceived Internet Censorship Behemoth. Recently I received a pdf file in reply outlining what the Minister will be doing which is basically ‘Full speed ahead!’, and ignoring my concerns. No surprises there.

Since then I’ve tracked down the email addresses of every Government Senator and MHR and informed them of my opposition to the ‘Damn-Fool-Scheme-That-Should-Have-Never-Got-Past-The-Idea-Stage’, and that I would be voting against the government in the Senate at the coming election. But, to paraphrase Bob Menzies, it’s easy for politicians to ignore a few emails, until they get a few thousand on the same subject. So here’s your opportunity to give the Government a few thousand of yours.

Below is the list. The only address I don’t have is Kevin’s.

Feel free to email these people. An email titled,

A Senate Vote you will lose at the next election.

I will be voting against the Labor government in the Senate at the coming election because I am opposed to Senator Conroy’s unworkable, ill-advised Internet Censorship Legislation. I will be encouraging everyone I can to do the same until the legislation is scrapped.

Your sincerely, etc

Probably would grab their attention. Feel free to cut and paste.

In the meantime I’ve been thinking about predatory internet users and a conversation I had with a Bishop some years back. I’ll be publishing a blog on that soon, right here.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
