Insulting your intelligence …

The appointment of Tim Wilson to the so called Human Rights Commission is a good step, a voice, at last for free speech.

The big question is, will it be heard?

The commission’s president Gillian Triggs has warned Mr Wilson that the commission must speak with one voice and be independent of government. She would like to see section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act, which makes it an offense for you to insult my pommy origins but not to insult my intelligence, strengthened.

Section 18c should be repealed.

  1. I’m not sure about Section 18c, I don’t know enough about it but I do support the appointment of Tim.
    I think Tim has scope to significantly contribute to Australia and how it is run.
