R18+ adjournment speech – your comments

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010 @ 9:15PM

Tonight I presented an adjournment speech to the Australian Senate to table a petition and add my support for the introduction of an R18+ games classification in Australia. The speech is linked below, along with a few other useful references.

I’d like to hear what you think.
