The man who is trying to protect Australia from all the evils of the world and block the Internet to online gambling websites and dentist offices, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, was recently voted the “Dumbest Politician” in a magazine survey.

Zoo Weekly magazine conducted the online survey of 1200 voters to dub Senator Conroy the dumbest politician, followed by Family First senator Steve Fielding, and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.

Stephen Conroy has relentlessly been working to filter various websites in Australia, though his efforts to date have been all for naught. 

At the launch of National Cyber Security Awareness Week in Melbourne last June, Senator Conroy puzzled listeners by declaring: "There's a staggering number of Australians being in having their computers infected at the moment, up to 20,000, uh, can regularly be getting infected by these spams, or scams, that come through, the portal (sic)."

At least he didn’t go on to warn about the inherent dangers of the Googles. 

Senator Conroy was nominated Internet Villain of the Year last year over the federal government's unpopular plans for the Internet filter.

Held in London at an annual Internet Industry Awards ceremony, Senator Conroy beat the likes of French President Nicolas Sarkozy to take out the award.
