Australian govt won't filter internet
THE federal government has abandoned its long-standing commitment to introduce a national internet filter and will instead ban websites related only to child abuse.

Following years of debate about trying to censor the internet, the Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, said the government would no longer proceed with ''mandatory filtering legislation''. It would, however, use powers under the Telecommunications Act to block hundreds of child abuse websites already identified on Interpol's ''worst of'' list.

Senator Conroy said blocking these sites met ''community expectations and fulfils the government's commitment to preventing Australian internet users from accessing child abuse material online''.

They simply didn't have the money to do it or the brains. The companies that tendered for the job were complete liars knowing it wall completely stall the internet connections if put into use.

The longer this government stays in power the closer we get to going bankrupt.
