Thanks to Skidbladnir for doing some digging and finding that Senator Humphries tabling of a bigoted petition last week was not the first time.
He also tabled one very much like it, also with just three signatures, on 16 August 2007.
Free speech is wonderful, but perhaps if groups want a voice in the parliament they should get a representative elected?
The Canberra Times has also covered the 48 times the freedom of speech of this petition has been honoured.
19 Liberals, six Nationals, eight Labor MPs and senators and two Independents have also tabled it since 2007, several more than once.
UPDATE: In the interest of fairness here’s the complete list of times this petition has been tabled.
