So if you want your politicians like him then and/or:
a. you have mistaken him for someone who is not terrible at his job
b. American politicians are relatively worse
why is he a douche? he wants to filter the internet 'portal's with a big brother style internet filter to protect the children from child pron but it just so happened that his big list of sites to be filtered contained regular porn, euthanasia sites and of course all the main poker sites (but don't blame him, he didnt actually come up with teh list - how convenient). He allegedly had to put it in the backburner because the current government is a minority government that will very likely become a minor party when they get soulcrushed at the next election.
Conroy doesn't even know the proper terms for the internet ... and the scary thing is he is the current Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. true story bro.
so yeah, if you want politicians like him .... I can do better. why don't you just take him? he wont be missed.
