Minister Conroy for sale on eBay
Senator Conroy, "the big mouth of Broadband and Communications in Australia" is now on sale via eBay.
Someone has put the Minister for Communications Stephen Conroy up for auction on eBay.
Item number 180342524797 is described as “the big mouth of Broadband and Communications in Australia – The uneducated idiot that plans to filter all internet content at an ISP level for end users. The rightful owner will have full use of Mr Conroy – As you see fit. (Although It is recommended only bringing him out for sexual pleasure at parties.)
“He has failed the Australian Government as Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. The asking price is around $8’000, or best offer. but send me your thoughts, No reasonable offer refused. He will be delivered via FedEX Courier Service to your doorstep where you can do with him as you wish. More Images are available via email on request – Including Nooooodes. Signed, K Rudd.”
It’s been a tough seven days for the Minister. First he was grilled live on air on the ABC’s Q & A where he explained “blacklist” errors as the consequence of the Russian mob.
The classification Board website was hacked at the same time as he was on air.
Then he was put through the wringer on SBS’ Insight.
His appointment of board members to the ABC and SBS was upstaged by a leak. And media have commented that his ISP filter plan is in a policy retreat.
Now he’s been lampooned by a mock auction on eBay.
