A public debate with Ireland’s excuse for a minister who brought in SOPA, and particularly interested parties has lead to another debacle. A solicitor with public interest in mind has been dropped from the debate.
There is no room for the public interest in that vision.

And the Minister didn’t want even one voice from that group to be heard.
