The total surveillance state in 1984 has been used as an example of despotism and tyranny since the book was written. This is exactly the same. I can’t understand why anyone would accept it.
“Team Australia”. I’m surprised I’ve seen no comment in Crikey, or elsewhere, but when I heard Tony Abbott utter those words I almost fell off the sofa.
