Australian bureaucracy is out of control - these are the government letters threatening jail sent to a conservative conference organiser
In August Liberty Works Australia presented the first Conservative Political Action Conference in Australia. (CPAC is a long running institution in the US).
The show was by all accounts a great success, featuring Nigel Farage, Tony Abbott, Craig Kelly and a host of conservatives.
I've read recent media reports about bureaucrats in Canberra giving the organisers of the event a going over under the provisions of the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme.
But nothing prepared me for the actual correspondence and threats sent to the organiser Andrew Cooper - for contributing to the body politic by running an interesting and informative conference!
When did Australia become like this?
