. Brian Harradine is currently an old Tasmanian Senator
. What you have is a senile old man out of touch
with current issues. This results in some very stiff necked traditionalist
policies that are based more on a lack of information and subsequent fear of the unknown
than any solid evidence.
One of his more stupid idea
s was for censorship of the internet in Australia
. If Harradine had done his job and considered
the technical plausibility
of this everybody would be happier
. His actions speak of his latent stupidity
I now I'm sure there are plenty of nice old men
out there with very liberal views, but Harradine is not one of them. My pet hate has to be of proponents
of action fueled by ignorance
. This is none the other
I'd like to leave you with an excellent quote from Brian Harradine:
] do get a huge volume of mail. One day in December last year 2,300 actual pieces of mail came to me--and that is not counting the email. Whoever invented email ought to be strung up!
So I do apologise..."
