    Do not you need we need censorship in Australia? or Do we need to continue with people behaving inappropriately?
    Can you see how ''democracy'' fails some of the internet censorship basics?

    Should not it be a norm for government to monitor people's activities and identify illegal behaviour?

    And this is what UK is doing too

    Are you suggesting that the government should monitor everything we do all the time - as in Orwell's novel 1984? Or everything we do on the internet, which the government does already to a limited extent?

    The main objective of the Chinese sensorship is online crime detection. Why can not China monitor what they like if UK can? Shall we decide on censorship requirements in China and monitor it from Australia?

    The UK doesn't imprison and torture innocent Australian children.

    The main objective of Chinese censorship is population control. The State will decide what the people can watch and read.

    We can speculate long and hard on what the objective is in our view but we can not ignore that fact that China is fighting illegal activities online rather effectively when compared to many Western nations. This includes horrible crimes such as child pornography rings etc.

    First ever political debate to be held in Chinese!
    Should be noted that Gladys Liu was a chess mum - as her kids were playing chess!

    So here we go, political debates in Chinese as Chinese-speaking population of Australia is growing.

    Overall, i see the trend to be very promising!

    Interesting news. But is the debate being held in China? Is it about China's totalitarian policies? If not, it should be in the 'Federal Election 2019' thread.

    It is here in Melbourne.
    and Re ''Chinese in Melbourne''
    My Congratulations go to the Melbourne University Chinese Debating Team for winning Chinese Debating Competition last night (competition takes place between Universities in Chinese Language (Mandarin) and teams consist mostly of International students) - well if you look at the topics discussed throughout the competition they are quite relevant to what is going on in China. I was told by the MCC team member that the main topic in the final was ''Should Minimal award rate be raised or not in China: Pros and Cons''.

    So Chinese do discuss what is important to them!

    This Gladys Liu?
    A recording of comments made by the Liberal candidate for the Victorian seat of Chisholm appearing to describe LGBTI issues as "ridiculous rubbish" has emerged after she claimed yesterday that stories about it were "fake news" and not representative of her own views. The recording, obtained by the ABC, comes from an interview reported in the Guardian in 2016 when Gladys Liu was working on the campaign of then Liberal candidate for the seat Julia Banks, who resigned last year citing bullying within the Liberal Party.
