Malcolm Turnbull defends “artistic” photographs of naked children

Malcolm Turnbull, the Prime Minister of Australia, has just lost his 29th Newspoll. One more loss and he will equal Tony Abbots score before Turnbull knifed him, stating “It is clear the people have made up their mind.” Perhaps that was the only chance Turnbull had of ever becoming Prime Minister.

Malcolm Turnbull, the Prime Minister of Australia, has just lost his 29th Newspoll. One more loss and he will equal Tony Abbots score before Turnbull knifed him, stating “It is clear the people have made up their mind.”

Perhaps that was the only chance Turnbull had of ever becoming Prime Minister. Even as Shadow Treasurer he seemed a little unhinged.

Flashback to 2008, when Police raided an exhibition in Sydney by “artist,” Bill Henson. Numerous pornographic “artistic” images were seized by Police, including naked photographs of children. Turnbull, the then Shadow Treasurer, came to the defense of the explicit photographs, suggesting Police should stay out of art galleries. The Prime Minister admitted to owning some of Henson’s “art” but denies they contain nudity.

I don’t believe that we should have policemen invading art galleries. I think we have a culture of great artistic freedom in this country… Freedom is a very precious thing. And before we have police men tramping through art galleries, tramping through libraries, going into newspaper’s officers, we’ve got to think, freedom is what makes this country great.
