It's not often you come accross a positive story about Australian politics, but apparently Australia's 'Nanny State' mentality has become an important enough issue that a full senate inquiry headed by ns fravorite, the LDP's David Leyonhjelm, is being launched to look at many of the over protectioist laws that we have in place.

Now I don't know what this inquiry will acheive; probably nothing (especially after looking at all the abc loving left wing hippie do-gooders and SJW's complaining about it in the comments section). But it is nice to se a shift in consciousness, even if it is a small one, and for some of these issues to finally be debated in the public domain.

If nothing else at least this might help him and people like him get a bit more exposure and help them come election time.

Definitely a step in the right direction. The legislation in this country, particularly NSW, is absolutely insane.

FYI you can be a leftie and still agree with the guy.

Im pretty staunch left wing but I agree with all his points. It cost my folks $10k of a 40k landscaping job just for the pool fence regulations. They never have and never will have children under the age of 15 in the yard again, and the whole property is secured.

I mean if someone who can hop a locked 6 ft gate somehow cant use the same skill to get out of a f**king pool, I would be surprised.

Seems like a forward push to clear up the amount of new laws that seem to get randomly dumped on our little population.
