No, you can compare it to a supermarket that has a set of checkouts where prices are cheaper and where all the latest products are available but which you are barred from using by the colour of your skin or the way you look. The site filtering bill is like a big piece of black plastic put up to stop you looking with a big security guard to say "Move Along, nothing to see here" whilst the kids duck under the fence when he isn't looking.
Come on Labor - stand up to these villains!
Terrorism; the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
Alright then Abbot; you own our turn back the boat policy, strip yourself of your citizenship buddy
Firstly you can lose your citizenship by financing terrorist activities. There is no check of intent so if you give money to a charitable cause and some of that money is used to finance terrorism then you are then a financer of terrorism and you can lose your citizenship.
Secondly you can lose your citizenship if you were born here. Like many Australians I am eligible for a UK passport because of my ancestry. I don't support terrorism but if I did something that the government construed as terrorism could I lose my citizenship and have to move to the UK?
Thirdly the minister gets to decide what is a terrorist organisation and what isn't. What safeguards are there on this to prevent organisations being demonized and then listed?
Finally there is the matter of proof. They have tried to get around this by saying that loss of citizenship happens automatically when the activity occurs however how is it established that the activity has occurred? In a court there are rules about how facts are established but there seem to be no rules in the legislation.
All in all some disturbing issues.
