Bill Leak almost certainly breached 18C, but he has a rock-solid defence

Yes, Bill Leak's cartoon probably breached 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act. But lawyer Michael Bradley says his salvation will be section 18D.


Bill Leak is, presumably, enjoying his status as a one-man outrage generator. Why he’d want to be that person is unknowable. There is a case for not acceding to his desire by giving his work free publicity and leaving it known only to the demographically specific readership of The Australian. Faint hope though.
