Conroy backflips

Loose thoughts by Bjorn Landfeldt

Finally it seems, has senator Conroy realised the political incorrectness of his mandatory filtering mantra.

Yesterday, senator Conroy stated in a senates estimate committee that Internet filtering wold remain voluntary in Australia. This is in stark contrast to his former stance where he has diligently been telling the entire ISP industry to keep quiet and stop questioning his authority.
Telecom TV reported over night but funnily enough there is nothing in Australian media as yet.

Lets hope that Xenophon remains sensible about the issue.

However, Labour has not given up on their plans altogether, Conroy states that if there would be majority in the senate, they would push legislation through. Let's hope there is time at least to gain some knowledge and more insight into the entire matter so that sensible decisions can be made if that time would to come.
