Letter to The Editor - As a lifetime conservative commentator, I'm sceptical of his claim
To The Age I'm puzzled by a quoted remark of leading workplace lawyer Josh Bornstein ("Caught in the scrum", 29/6) that "the free speech warriors of the right are almost without exception complete hypocrites" because when "someone of the left says something they oppose", they jettison their commitment to the principle of free speech. Who can he mean? To what contexts does he refer? As a lifetime conservative commentator, I'm sceptical of his claim. He's much more on track with his statement that restrictions on free speech should be "done by legislation rather than workplace law". Yes, we don't want the regulation of speech to be controlled by corporations.
