Well...don't they have elections there? Get these stooges out...the entire populace can't be for this level of censorship, right?

By the way I was serious...I will gladly buy and ship a game at no profit to myself if needed. I will list the contents as "My Little Pony: Twinkle Wish Adventure DVD"

The problem is the current government is the less conservative of our two party system (think democrats) so by voting in the other major party the censorship is actually likely to get worse not better! I always find it morbidly amusing when we supposedly live in a majority run democracy and yet it is politicians with out-dated views which go against popular opinion who end up forming legislation. There has to be a better way!

Elections will make no difference, everybody in opposing parties are either old fashioned, or too scared to speak against the majority. Our political system is outdated and needs a reform, no doubt about it.

Your government has the majority of things right... its a shame its the people, not the system that is failing for us.
