Up yours, censors 21/12/2012
Brilliant columnist James Delingpole has thumbed his nose at Australian Press Council intimidaters and refused to resile from his colourful comparison of wind farms to pedophiles.
As for its Press Council and their ruling about what I said about wind farms (The Australian, May 3) I stand by every word of the piece – especially the bit about pedophiles. I would concede that the analogy may be somewhat offensive to the pedophile community. Nevertheless, like the anonymous sheep farmer I quoted, I feel that the “level of offensiveness” is entirely justified.
So where does this leave the APC bullies? They’ve already been left red-faced by fellow lefties at the ABC approving a comparison of climate change doubters with pedophiles. Perhaps they hope the whole matter will disappear over the Christmas break.
