  • This is simply part of an attempt by the Greens and Labor to shut down criticism in the press and on forums such as this.

  • @Peter posting here - well said indeed! Bipolar Nola is way, way out of her depth. Just to see her on the electronic media makes me ill. It looks like a base grade damned public service office assistant yet it is the damned labor rotten party Attorney General. The mess she made will take 10 plus years to mend. The silly looking feminazi that she is!

  • So why does the one who is being brought before the unelected, unaccountable tribunal have to pay costs no matter what ??

  • The changes in the anti-discrimination laws are for one thing and one thing only.
    To stop criticism!

  • Free speech is our right to criticise and be criticised!
    Roxan and her bunch of hurt feeling activists should grow up and get their collective heads out of their arses. Once you deny people a voice in defence of their opionion you will only fuel their dissent in the law of the land. Lets not make freedom of speech a crime based on truth or the lack there of!
