All pornography in the United Kingdom to be censored by default

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year and a half ago


An anonymous reader writes "Arguing that pornography is "corroding childhood", British Prime Minister David Cameron is to announce that UK Internet Service Providers must filter all online pornography unless users decide to opt-in to receiving it. In addition, pornography depicting rape will be outlawed, and a database of "banned child porn images" will be constructed to identify anyone viewing these images. Cameron also wants search engines to pop up warning messages when people appear to be searching for prohibited content. He concludes, "This is, quite simply, about how we protect our children and their innocence."

This is not an April Fool."

Well that creates a rather interesting short list of "sexual deviants" now doesn't it?
