Election 2010: Liberals oppose Labor's Internet filter

Good news for Internet users:

Opposition treasury spokesman Joe Hockey says the Coalition will not back the Government's proposed internet filter.

The Government announced the filter two years ago as part of its cyber safety program to protect children from pornography and offensive material.

The plan has been criticised by internet users who claim it will slow download speeds and lead to unwarranted censorship.

The unpopular filter proposal is already on hold while undergoing independent review. Best to kill it now.
