In Australia the Gillard government spearheaded by the odious Senator Conroy is attempting to force through legislation that will impose the most rigorous governmental regime over the press in peacetime in the history of the nation. They are determined to to this in under a week. It is a transparent attack on News Limited, the only reliable source of news and commentary left and which isn't under the heel of the progressive left political classes and their pathological obsessions. The government appears determined this will be its political legacy.

Outside Australia the attack is also gaining momentum. Saudi Arabia, that's right Saudi Arabia, and tho OIC is once again demanding a world wide blasphemy law that will make it a criminal offence to criticise Islam or offend Muslims as it already is in most Muslim countries and in many European countries. Not women. Not "Zionists" of course. Muslims.
Here's Pat Condell latest video just up loaded. Listen to what he has to say before it is against the law.
