Brandis and Speers and Clarke and Dawe (

The interview with AG George Brandis trying to spruik his mandatory data retention legislation has been floating around and it is indeed hilarious. I feel however that while the interviewer did a good job of pressing Brandis, he should have pointed out that there exists no meaningful difference between ‘data’ and ‘metadata’ in this context.

Blending the Brandis train-wreck with Clarke and Dawe is a stroke of obvious genius.
