Enjoy your unfiltered internet access while it lasts. As we speak, the
government is hard at work building a device to censor the internet.
Presumably this will be followed by a machine to beam KEVIN11 propaganda
straight into people's brains, then a giant ray gun to obliterate dissidents

Stephen Conroy, the Communications Minister expects the mandatory internet
filters blocking "inappropriate material" to be ready for field testing by
the end of June.
Is it time to start asking questions ?
