Australian Government pressures states to adopt R18+ rating

Seems like the Australian government is pressuring the states to finally adopt an R18+ rating for the country with the Home Affairs Minister Brendan Connor even going as far to say that Australia is "the laughing stock of the developed world" without it and that "the Commonwealth will certainly be considering other options" if there is no consensus on the issue.

I think it's good that at the Federal level there is support for an R18+ rating and that they realise that preventing the introduction of an R18+ rating is actually "causing harm to young people" by allowing borderline MA15+ games in (where with an R18+ rating option, you have the easy choice of classifying it higher without banning it outright).
