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.

    Mark Steyn and Ezra Levant`s fight with the human rights commission in Canada, was not so much to defend what they were charge with but to attack the commission as anti democratic and anti free speech.
    Its time we new who these new commissars are.
