Meta rejects Craig Kelly’s demand to suspend factchecking on Facebook during election campaign

The demand for verifiable facts according to Kelly is a restriction on free speech. His freedom is to say anything he wants true, false or even insane is an individual’s right because Facebook has banned him but not the UAP. A vote for the UAP is a vote for the LNP and a vote for the LNP is a vote for the new coalition of the L-NP-UAP and there isn’t any love between them.

Although Kelly is banned from the platform, his party is not, and according to Facebook’s transparency report, the United Australia party has spent over $513,000 on ads in the last 90 days alone on Facebook – the largest political ad spend in Australia on the platform. Party founder Clive Palmer has separately spent over $161,000 in the same period. The Liberal party spent over $44,000 in the same period.

Labor’s health spokesman, Chris Bowen, seized on the controversy, arguing the social media giant had “called out ‘Conspiracy Craig’s’ medical disinformation campaign” after the prime minister, Scott Morrison, and federal health minister, Greg Hunt, failed to do so.

“Kelly’s family furniture business went belly-up.  Whilst this loud-mouth ignorant bully continues to exert influence via threats to colleagues and an inflated media presence, his appalling lack of judgement risks doing the same to the country.”

Liberal Party in turmoil over plan to save Craig Kelly through emergency powers

Liberal MP Craig Kelly could be saved from a preselection defeat under a divisive new plan.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has moved to save embattled backbencher Craig Kelly from being thrown out of Parliament in a risky intervention that will ignite a fresh war between the Liberal Party’s conservative and moderate forces.

Mr Kelly, a key ally of former prime minister Tony Abbott who helped engineer the demise of Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee, is facing certain defeat in a preselection challenge by Kent Johns in the safe southern Sydney seat of Hughes.

How Craig Kelly cons the punters – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Member for Hughes and chairman of the Coalition backbench environment and energy committee, Craig Kelly, seems to split his time between appearing on Sky After Dark and 2GB, and posting clickbait headlines on his facebook page.

But the most cursory investigation shows Craig is either deliberately misrepresenting the articles he links to by cherry-picking a sentence or two, or he is a gullible fool who doesn’t bother reading the stuff he is being fed by others. Considering the volume of links he posts, I would suggest the latter.

Abbott Threatens the Liberal Party

 Craig Kelly,  ”  faces a serious challenge in his seat of Hughes from the Liberal party state vice-president, Kent Johns. Insiders suggest Johns, a party moderate, will have the numbers – which prompted Abbott to go into bat for the backbencher on Wednesday.

Abbott warned there would be no “harmony” inside the Liberal party if Kelly – his factional ally – was “rolled”.

“I think it would be a disaster for our party if Craig Kelly were to lose preselection, an absolute disaster,” the former prime minister told 2GB. “He has been a very good local member, he has been a very strong participant in all of our policy discussions, he has been a very good and vocal advocate for our position.
“The idea he should be knocked off, at this point in time … I just think that is the worst possible look.

“The only way we can win the election is if we have harmony inside our party and we sure ain’t going to have harmony if Craig Kelly gets rolled.”
