Has anyone else noticed the remarkable change that seems to be coming over Australian Communications Minister Stephen Conroy?
He used to be such a handsome chap. Here he is (left), talking to the Sydney Institute last year, relaxed and comfortable among sycophantic friends.
Unfortunately, it’s been a hard year for Senator Conroy and he seem to be running out of friends, sycophantic or otherwise.
Here he is again (right), pictured in a recent article in IT News: Conroy requests faith in net filter scheme.
There are clear signs of facial cracking, possibly caused by stress. But a more sinister theory cannot be overlooked.
Using sophisticated imaging technology, I extrapolated the observable changes in the good Senator’s appearance, to picture what he may look like in 12 months time if current trends persist.
By then, if he gets his way, Conroy will be the Minister Overseeing Year One of the Brave New Australian Era of Government-Censored Internet.
I wonder if ACMA will ban this appalling image?
Perhaps I’ll forward the evidence to Nicola Roxon, Commonwealth Minister for Health and Ageing, so she can make arrangements for extra garlic deliveries to Parliament House until the scare recedes.
