One of the very few legacies left by Joe Bullock, the Labor Senator who resigned because he couldn’t handle Labor Party support for marriage equality, is an anti-porn inquiry he set up a few months back. Most of the submissions are now in, and they’re mostly members of the public calling again for the unpopular mandatory internet filtering scheme to be brought in.
