Just before Christmas, while the rest of us were engaged in hi-jinks and end-of-year japery, Stephen Conroy was a man on a mission, to correct the calumnies heaped upon him by opponents of his internet filtering proposal.  He therefore sent a Crikey a lengthy and detailed rebuttal of points made by myself and the estimable Stilgherrian.

Points to Conroy for engaging with his critics on policy detail, something a few of his ministerial colleagues should think about doing.  Alas, there are some areas in his response where Conroy wasn’t, shall we say, entirely correct.
