Quote of the Month

So there we have it. Policy questions lead to "mischief-making". Public discussion of major issues is an unnecessary "sport". Asking basic questions can lead to unwarranted "micro-detailed discussions".
The policy goals justify silence about the means. And for that reason the government, which believes so fervently in free speech, thinks it is reasonable to withhold basic information from the national policy conversation. [Journalist Lenore Taylor quoting and explaining Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott,9 January 2014]

I must have missed the "vote for censorship" 3 word slogan before the September 2013 election.
