What stuck out to me this morning was Kate Ellis revealing that Labor members of parliament had Australians in their electoral offices saying that the Prime Minister wasn’t reflecting their wishes, and this was the impetus for considering a change of leadership. This week a petition that 19,000 Australians have signed was tabled in the Senate and 48,000 Australians have participated in the Time to Tell Mum campaign, all evidence that Senator Stephen Conroy’s censorship proposal isn’t reflecting their wishes. We hope the similarities between both situations are as apparent to the government as they are to us.
