Family First led the charge to restore free speech in 18C after the former PM abandoned reform. Family First's reasonable proposal to remove 'insult' and 'offend' initially drew minimal Coalition cross bench support, then the whole senate Coalition backbench. However the rightful dismissal of the infamous QUT case has emboldened Coalition ministers to demand reform.

Paul Kelly calls on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to show leadership & compromise on 18C by only removing "offend" and "insult" - the same content of Senator Bob Day's bill that received widespread support from Coalition Senators:

Despite his moral support for Euthanasia, Rex Jory writes that any attempt to legalise it is wrong:

"It would be naïve, even irresponsible, to believe that once the laws are in place they will not be tinkered with by future Parliaments. That would only be in one direction – to make mercy killing more accessible."
