Not only in Jacindaland where the Department of Internal Affairs last week announced draconian censorship plans in reaction, but Elon Musk is also driving Europe’s snivelling bureaucrats crazy. They can’t have the public revealing the truth!

If Brussels’ tech disinfo code is voluntary, then why did officials freak out when Musk yanked Twitter from it?
European Union officials are having a meltdown, all because Twitter CEO Elon Musk has withdrawn the platform from a “voluntary” EU code of conduct for tech firms to combat so-called “disinformation.” And they have yet to cite a single actual example of it.
EU Internal Markets Commissioner Thierry Breton tweeted, “You can run, but you can’t hide,” citing a legal obligation to prevent disinformation from August. He’s basically treating Musk, a guy who builds rockets and cars in America, like an unruly schoolchild, with Brussels in the role of the principal. French Digital Minister Jean-Noel Barrot even threatened to ban Twitter from the EU in a recent interview, citing the “grave” threat of disinformation.
