Offend and insult while you still can

The Australian has published an excellent editorial today, poking fun at the Gillard government’s proposed changes to anti-discrimination law:

In our vibrant democracy, even from the fragile disposition of this national broadsheet, we must accept that the contest of ideas and the struggle for power will lead to occasional bouts of such intemperate verbal jousting. We beg forgiveness for having the temerity to point this out but the Attorney-General perhaps needs to be careful that her own legislative activism doesn’t jeopardise these exchanges, or at the very least expose future participants in such debates to endless return exchanges in the courts.

It’s certainly worth a read.
