David Cameron looks at blocking porn because he's obsessed with smut

4 May 2012

pornOur beloved leader, David Cameron The Prime Minister, is invariably going to announce formal plans to look into network-level filtering of porn from the web. That's because you, as an adult, cannot be trusted with what you look at online.

Cameron, with his head like a spent condom, is being lead by MP Claire Perry and of course, backed by The Daily Mail who show more boobs and gurgle 'hasn't she grown up?!' at barely legal celebrity children more than any other paper.

And this, apparently, doesn't count as censorship.

A Downing Street source has said that Cameron will announce a consultation into existing laws regarding internet smut, including whether consumers should be forced to "opt in" with their ISPs to receive adult content. "Nothing is ruled in or out at the moment," said the source. "We will look at all the options."

"I'm not zealous about this - I just want the facts," said Perry MP. "If we can see that the idea of an 'opt-in' system is technologically difficult or bad for the economy, then fine. But the problem with the debate is we need to know the facts." And how is Perry going about getting 'the facts'? No, she's not watching a load of bongo films for 'research', but rather, her first expert witness in the inquiry was Sun columnist Dear Deidre. No, this isn't something we're making up for comedic effect.

She added that blocking websites didn't amount to censorship. "There is a 'hands off our internet' movement that sees any change in how access is delivered as censorship. We are not being prudish, but we just think the current method of blocking that material is broken."

    Last time I looked, we didn't need to 'opt in' having alcohol in the house, with Tesco not selling it to you without your address being on their database.

    I think it's actually a great idea, especially for students like me who can easily get distracted, should have an option whether they want it to 'exist' on their network.

    What if the parents want to look at the porn. Or maybe just one of them does? How about you just make parents take responsibility for their kids?

    Harriet Harman should be consulted, then her husband can watch a load of porn and claim the cost from the taxpayer......Again!

    “If we can see that the idea of an ‘opt-in’ system is technologically difficult or bad for the economy, then fine. But the problem with the debate is we need to know the facts.” We already know these things. Stop wasting our cash you cock juggling thundercunt.

    And this will no doubt end up being turned into a way for the government to filter out anything they don't wish us to see and backdoor controls on the internet they couldn't get through Parliament a few months back.
