Yet again he's talking in circles. He's a damn fool.

PEGI already has 18+ as a rating. But they should really change the 16+ to 15+, so their rating would span 12+, 15+, 18+.

Empire Total War got a 16+ rating which was ridiculous. Not only that game, but many other games also has 16+ which is silly considering the content.

Australia has no 18+ rating for games, which is where this discussion comes from. The reason why we still don't comes down to the man being interviewed in the article.

Yeah, PEGI is for Europe only. So he's trying to keep an artificial censorship by having lower age restriction for games. He probably still believes that only kids play games.

He does. He said so in a previous interview with ABC TV show Good Game

It really annoys me how he can just say no, no matter what the other states AND the public say. He can just say no and nothing will change. He can't be voted out of office, he is there to stay... What a freaking joke.
