Calling Conroy an idiot won’t stop the filter


Getting rid of Conroy won’t get rid of the filter — it’s not just a personal thing, it’s endorsed by Cabinet. Attacking him in the hope that his unlikely removal would kill the proposal is just a waste of time.

  1. That is untrue. Once public opinion turns completely against him, and they sack him, then the Cabinet will be quick to distance themselves from him.

    This is a personal crusade that Conroy is trying to force on the rest of us. Unfortunately Cabinet, like Conroy, fail to fully understand the situation.

    • I think you have a fair point Christian. Conory is seen as the chief proponent of the filter. Personal attacks against him are likely to have some degree of success if they have a basis — you need only look at the impact of similar attacks in South Australia on former Attorney-General Michael Atkinson.

      Of course, in that case, the attackers were able to prove Atkinson was hypocritical — something that has yet to be done in Conroy’s case ;)

      Of course, personal attacks are a bit unseemly in public discourse.
