Some pigs are more equal ...

It seems that the Minister for Gaming in the Victorian government is such a precious flower that he can't stand criticism.

So much so that his colleagues (and opponents) in parliament have seen fit to propose a law making it an offence to insult him. The penalty is a fine of up to $11, 945 for anyone who "assaults, obstructs, hinders, threatens, abuses, insults, or intimidates" the minister or authorised persons exercising "due diligence" in monitoring gambling systems such as pokies.

In light if this, I wish to make it known that I believe the Victorian Minister for Gaming is a pusillanimous coward, unfit to hold elected office, and abysmally unfit for the duties of his portfolio.
