I think you're being too kind. The report of the Parliamentary Inquiry into Online Child Protection is hopeless drivel too, but its author has no background in any related field. She was allowed to do the report to appease a lobby, as was Beecroft. This government isn't actively making bad decisions, it's merely acted on by forces that aggregate towards foolishness.

My touchscreen ejector seat: the Send button in the iPhone SMS composer. Within a finger's width of both the O and the P key. Gets me every time. @Davraamides: crucial to keep in mind that although items are easier to click if they're *on* the screen edge, being *near* the edge - even one pixel away - completely removes the benefit. In fact, putting something *near* the edge probably makes it a bit harder to click, because it'll more likely be further away from the user's start position (compared to, say, an object in the centre of the screen). The Mac OS menu bar is a fairly rare example of an effective application of the rule.
