Cameron watched his first porn when he was 20 I guess...
And for a lot of teens the internet is known as:
games + social networks + porn = internet

It's not the governments job to parent. There are parental controls on practically everything these days, including your computer. Turn them on if you're worried, stop asking the government to do your job for you.

I wonder if these same anti-porn filters will also block the Daily Mail online? the same Daily Mail which was drooling over a 13yr old saying she "looks all grown up" if the Daily Mail was a family member it'd be a creepy uncle complaining about paedos while asking the kids to sit on his lap. :|

Whatever do you mean?

Filtering porn is nothing new.

Forcing ISPs to do it is though.

They're legally not forcing them to do it as they'd never actually be able to legislate it, it's just a bluff he's hoping the ISPs just do as he says and they might do a small part but some of the ISPs have actually been fairly decent about protecting their users.

They're not forcing them to do it right now, they've got to do it by themselves or he will legislate it. It was legislated on mobile phone internet too, never used to be limited but now with all providers in the UK you have to phone them up to get the internet restrictions off.

So David Cameron takes advice from the Daily Mail now?

Problem with democracy is, I can't even stop this lousy ****...

Oh I can go on the governments petition website and set one up, that's going to make all the difference. /s

from some of the comments, it would seem some "want" their kids to be able to look at porn easily and problem free?

Has David Cameron been taking notes from the books of people like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, and Rick Santorum about appealing to the lowest common denominator? This is the UK, pandering to right wing Christians won't win you votes. Sorry, David :laugh:

When they ask if you have children, just say no. Problem solved.
