Anti-Free Speech bill passes first reading

the Anti-Free Speech Bill Electoral Finance Bill has just passed its first reading. There are some very good posts on it here and here and here and here, which tell you all you need to know about what it says. The bill is very long, 94 pages, so I’ve got a lot of reading to do over the weakend. It is the biggest attack on free speech in the history of the country, and effectively bans anyone from criticising the government during election year. It will be opposed and hopefully defeated. Expect to hear a lot more about it on this blog in the future.
