How I wish...
The conservative Australian prime Minister, Tony Abbott, posted a video on his YouTube account. The video is typical mind-control spin, including repeatedly calling asylum seekers "illegals" when they have broken no laws.
The video was (understandably, I think) reported as spam, and YouTube automatically blocked it and suspended his account. That didn't last long, but given how enthusiastically the government has embraced copyrisght and censorship takedowns, it's pleasing to see them suffering from the laws they support even in a small way.
Will Abbott learn it has become too easy to block content? Will he stop using inflamatory and false language? Unlikely. But It's good to see the image below calling his rant deceptive.
