So an R18+ rating in Australia is wrong, but flying a Nazi flag is right?

So.....



Today I read a story claiming that there's a guy in a suburb in Adeliade in South Australia who is flying a Nazi flag from a flag pole in his yard. Now, you'd think the authorities would step in and claim this was in bad taste and order that the flag be removed. Apparently not. Seemingly the man is within his rights to fly the flag and South Australia Attorney General Michael Atkinson says that although the flag is in "very bad taste" it is allowed.

By the way, this is the same Michael Atkinson, who is almost single-handidly holding Australia back from an R18+ rating for video games, for whatever moralistic reasons. What a country eh? You can show your support for the Third Reich but you can't buy Silent Hill: Homecoming.

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007

Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.

Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.

You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.
