Whilst there may be many laws in a country run by a democratically elected government, which any one individual or group might wish to see changed or repealed. I don’t think that breaking them is a sensible option particularly when you announce an intention to continue doing it.
Everyone should be grateful that we are free to criticize what we disagree with. However to challenge laws by breaking them, seldom has any effect other than to hit the headlines briefly. In this case of Derryn Hinch’s prosecution there are many better places to spend $100,000 even if Mr Hinch by using media power, prefers not ”to render unto Caesar” who probably cares little whether he gets the cash or supports who is seen as a criminal with 50 days board and lodging.
