Family First’s Steve Fielding is at it again. According to Crikey, he’s convinced Senate President Alan Ferguson to filter every Senator’s Internet access at Parliament House (except the library). Why? To stop them looking at inappropriate content.

Steve fielding censors senators

Senator Lyn Allison says sites relating to reproductive health, the sexualisation of children, drug abuse and rehabilitation, the opium crop in Afghanistan, and weapons trading are all blocked. They’ve all been blacklisted as “inappropriate.”

Allison is now trying to find out why Fielding has been allowed to impose his views on all Senators, and who decides what is inappropriate.

What a joke. We expect our pollies to do a decent job, but with a censored Internet? That’s pushing the political views of one man on all.
