Sun advice columnist advised MPs on UK porn-block plans

nk497 writes "The first official expert witness in an inquiry into network-level filtering of porn was a Sun advice columnist called Dear Deidre. A group of MPs has been pushing to censor the UK web to prevent children from seeing porn, but reading the full report reveals the weakness of the evidence. It also features Dear Deidre defending the topless model on Page 3 of her own newspaper saying “the Editor of The Sun thinks it’s okay” and “nine million people read it”."
