A Victory For Internet Censorship In Australia

Australia Internet Filter

 

There will not be any Web filtering in Australia, at least not in the foreseeable future.

A coalition group, led by former Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull, has organised an event in his seat of Wentworth this Saturday to "discuss" the Government's controversial plan to censor the internet.

Treasurer Joe Hockey had already killed the proposed Internet filter the other night.

Hockey told the Triple J current affairs program that the opposition would oppose the policy, that it was bad policy, and that it would instead revert to the Howard Government policy of giving away filter software to end-users for free.

And that we would hear more about the policy soon.

Greg Tingle, Special Contributor to the Gambling911.com website, has been covering Communication Director Stephen Conroy’s controversial Web filtering plan for the better part of a year.  A leaked list of those sites to be blocked included a dentist office and a licensed online betting exchange in Australia, Betfair.

Tingle will be speaking at the Australian Anti Internet Forum, which is moderated Turnbull.

“This is very big news in Australia,” Tingle proclaimed.
