    So posting something like 30 articles relating to the questions, several directly answering them, and several statements of what the section would do if it were ever made active, is inadequate? I think you got as distracted by "muh libertarianism " as I did

    I have read and kind of understood it.
    Can you explain to me what the bill that you are proposing to repeal does in simple English please and your case for why we should repeal it.( I was not present during first or second reading)

    Simply put it removes an as of yet not implemented (but can be implemented at pretty much any time) that means for a small set of legal cases, the main one being libel, the media is required to sign up to a government recognised regulator or have to pay all legal costs irrespective of who wins the case. At all levels, local to national, pretty much none of the press meets this criterion, their chosen "regulator" being against this section and stating it would not seek recognition.

    Not so sure that posting a bunch of articles constitutes addressing the points made. And yes, 'muh libertarianism' did prove to be quite distracting.

    To be honest I think Jammy Duel has won this one by quite a landslide. Look at the votes

    So what even is it you want, clearly it's not an explanation?

    Whatever it was I last said to you in the debate that you didn't reply to. I can't say I'm all that motivated to follow up on it given it's the day before Division closes and the result has become inevitable.
