The bloke is Communications Minister in the Gillard government, heap big poobah in intimidating free citizens.
Stevie isn’t exactly the natural born libertarian type. In fact, he seems pretty desperate to tell us all what to do. Senator Conroy is pretty anxious to bring Rupert Murdoch into line, the Murdoch papers criticise the government you see, while the other lot, Fairfax, pretty much take their lead from the Guardian and Independent and tend to give government ministers tongue baths. He’s also planning on putting in place an Internet censoring system – the good Senator has heard of the Great Firewall of China and wants one of his own to play with. After all, if Iran can copy China why can’t he?
Just another of those control freaks that progressivism seems to attract these days. Although, unlike so many others, he is in a position to do something about these not so hidden lusts.
Anyway, that puts this in context.
Unfettered power? Red underpants? Really? On their head?
