Looks like this group is focusing the filter debate in areas where it will
do the most damage to Labor prior to the election. It's obvious from the
voluminous comments on any news item about the filter that it's a
dealbreaker for former Labor supporters.  I don't think Conroy saying "trust
us" will swing them, given the duplicity at the last election. Rudd needs to
kill the filter stone dead to get them back.



The Safer Internet Group, which is made up of companies and organisations
that include Google, Internet Industry Association, iiNet, Australian
Council of State School Organisations and the Australian Library and
Information Association, said it commissioned the research to better
understand the awareness, knowledge and perceptions of Australian parents *in
marginal seats* on the proposed filtering legislation.
