Double Standards?

Only a matter of days ago, the Australian government joined the international chorus of condemnation in regards to the filtering of internet access for visiting media during the Beijing Olympics.

Hypocritically, news is now “filtering” through in regards to the details of the “mandatory” filtering systems, currently being trialled on behalf of that same Australian government.

As an Australian, I’m pretty disgusted that they can point the finger at China – (and they do need fingers pointed at them) – and push on with this “mandatory filtering” program, and suggest that it will cost us, the users, to implement.

Poor form chaps – we are watching. And we will take you to task.
