Back-bencher John Rau is replacing Michael Atkinson as the South Australian Attorney-General after the latter stepped down post election this past weekend. According to Chris Pryor of the Games4Croydon political group that ran a candidate against Atkinson, this is a good thing.
John Rau, the new Attorney General of South Australia, has reportedly said to Gamers4Croydon’s Chris Prior that he is a supporter of the R18+ classification for games, the Gamers4Australia wait for that rating to be ratified.
Gamers of Australia are hoping that South Australia’s new Attorney General, John Rau, will live up to Gamers4Croydon’s Chris Prior tweet that he’s a nice guy, is a supporter of the R18+ classification for games and that R18+ is on his to do list.
A few years back, when Michael Atkinson was Attorney-General of South Australia, it would have been unheard of to write the heading above. But now that John Rau is AG in that state it seems sensible discussion about Australia’s video-game rating system can be had.
