Last night on the 7.30 Report communications minister Stephen Conroy slammed Google for its hypocritical stance on the government's proposed internet filter:

"We as a sovereign government are not going to allow large multinational corporations or foreign governments to determine what should be in our refused classification category. Google signed a contract with China to do censorship. They signed a contract to do that. In Thailand, Google have agreed to filter any criticism of the Thai royal family. What's that about? So, Google want to talk about legitimising censorship in other countries; they should have a look in the mirror."
