No streaking

The government's Major Events Management Bill passed its third reading yesterday. So, in a couple of days it will be an offence, on pain of three months imprisonment or a $5,000 fine, to streak at a rugby match the Sports Minister wants to attend. It's often joked that rugby is our national religion, but now it seems to have its own equivalent of blasphemous libel as well.
