As you may recall the Australian Governments has decided to introduce a trial for an Internet filter. I decided that one of the few things to express my displeasure about this was to send letters to my local MP, Prime Minster Kevin Rudd and Minister for Broadband, Communications and Digital Economy, Steven Conroy. I posted this letter on a previous post where you can see my views on the subject.
Recently I received a letter from Kevin Rudds office. The brief upshot is:
“Thanks for contacting Kevin…I am aware that the proposal for ISP filtering has has attracted some criticism… However…”
Then the letter goes into the usual political speak that explains the current government policy that we have heard without covering the points that I and so many others have brought up.
I’ll be interested to see if I get a letter from Steven Conroy office.
