Mr President, I have a supplementary question. I refer to the comments from the President of the Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs, who said, 'It is not clear why intimidation should not include psychological and emotional damage that can be caused by racial abuse.' Why is the Attorney-General so eager to defend the rights of bigots and not those Australians who suffer psychologically and emotionally from racial abuse?
