Default Michael Atkinson quits position as Attorney-General

http://games.on.net/article/8428/Atkinson_Quits

Best news I've heard so far this year!

The South Australian election was held yesterday, he won his position of Attorney-General, then quits!

Good. The fact he got re-elected just shows how many uninformed people there are out there. The amount of stupid stuff he did is quite a long list and most of it is with regards to surpressing peoples right to freedom. Glad at least he realises it if not the general population of SA

I'm really surprised to hear this. He won, then steps down? After all his gloating and show boating on how poorly Gamers4Croydon would do (they did much better than he said they would)

BUT both Game and EB really got behind this. I wonder if there is more going on behind the scenes than meets the eye...

Yeah. Is he retiring to the back bench now? or in 4 years. Most sites make it sound like he is going now and then in 4 years he's calling it quits altogether?

Either way he's made so many mistakes, surely even if he is still around he can see all this censorship is infringing on our rights. I mean I don't want to call in DarthBeavis and the UN. But I will if I have to.
