Well hasn't this one stirred the pot.

Is this not just another "Nanny State" proposal being leaked to the 
public at large to deflect attention from the real issues that our 
elected representatives SHOULD be addressing but for a variety of 
reasons avoid like the plague???

 From where I sit, I don't want anyone making lifestyle decisions for me 
and certainly not party affiliated poli's. Thats not what I elected them 

If people really want to make their opinions known to our elected 
representatives, then try,"Why, now that the price of Crude Oil is 
selling at around $80 US a barrel, are we still paying around $1.40 for 
petrol? So by all means swamp them with well worded letters of concern, 
but on real issues, not pipe dream trojan horses.

I wouldn't mind betting that for every attempt to filter or restrict 
internet content there will be 10 cracks available within 7 days of the 

Well thats my opinion anyway....so there!

Regards to all
