dotarray writes "In Adelaide today, the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General was again unable to reach a unanimous decision on the topic of whether or not Australia should have an R18+ rating for video games." Nonetheless, the committee has reached a decision in principle to allow such a rating, with only one Attorney General having abstained from today's vote.

    The NSW Attorney General abstained because it hasn't been discussed in the NSW Parliament, despite (in his own words) "the issue being around for over 9 years".

    I really do despise Conservatives that are unable to make a decisions without asking someone else. Why do you think you are in that position? It's because obviously people trust you to make the right decisions from time to time without having to go back and ask them all the time!!
