Julie Inman Grant: Censor and Asshole

Six months ago, I wrote about Julie Inman Grant, Australia’s eSafety Commissioner, and her fight with Musk-Twitter-X. Now, she’s apparently at it again.

I’m not going to work to figure out the details of this latest round of the fight. There is no need. In June I worked enough to figure out what Inman Grant was on about, and I know her all too well. She is an appalling woman, an authoritarian and self-righteous censor in an appalling office, backed by appalling legislation and cheered on by appallingly ignorant stenographer-journalists who should damn well know better.

For those who care to read, Inman Grant’s latest sermonising can be found here, here, here and here. But I’ll bet the house that there is no point. Just read what I wrote in June; she won’t have changed. One doesn’t have to like or respect Musk to realise that Inman Grant and her fellow goons are a much greater threat than the threats from which she is supposedly protecting us.

    1. Thanks, Rod, assuming it’s not sarcasm.

      It’s perhaps a little odd to post on such matters on a maths ed blog. But to me it all feels part of the same thing.

  1. Thank you for posting this.

    Julie Inman Grant is genuinely the greatest threat to freedom of speech in Australia.
