Are we Turkey down under? We allowed this to escallate in the last 6 years creating laws against “public interest” laws against “whistleblowing” laws that assume the police in applying them aren’t acting with any “political interest”. Keep on dreaming Australia.  It’s a “police state” and it’s open to abuse. The greatest threat is to our ABC which has been increasingly emasculated under this government and will continue to be for asking the hard questions. (ODT)
