Shouldn't this be a decision best made in the home instead of a de facto decision made by government?

Wow this present government has really gone power mad. In Amsterdam they have had legal porn for many years and they have a very low sex crime rate. Blocking porn should be a decision made by us not forced on us!

I think this country needs to grow up do some real parenting and stop letting Cameron bully us around.

I agree, If parents spent more time learning about parental controls on computers and phones, and less time moaning. There wouldnt be a problem.

Cameron has no idea on how to implement this realistically. This will be a massive technical challenge and will most likely end up massively flawed and easy to circumvent just like the 'crackdown' on filesharing.

This is just another desperate attempt at grabbing voters.

The real problem here is parenting and letting children access computers and the Internet without supervision. Fight the cause, not the symptoms.

The opening post is like one sentence long.
And yet most of the responses are acting like...

You know what, never mind.

You're letting David Cameron play on your fears as a parent. Seems he will always come up with some 'spin' to take people's liberties away. He's one of the worst Prime ministers we have ever had.

What has kids lying about their age to do with this?

If their expectations are drawn from pornography then they have not been educated about the subject have they.

No one blames the media when little Johnny realizes it's not as easy to be a super hero or astronaut as portrayed in films do they?

Sorry your line of arguing holds no water.

Missing the point entirely.

Why should EVERY adult with internet access be subjected to this because of negligent parenting and lack of education on this subject?

I agree with you, but it is one of the only sides of 'Big Brother' that I do agree with. I see that people who want porn can still receive it but it means that I won't have to ever watch what my little grand daughter opens up on the computer, so its a relief in one respect.

I do feel that there is a very preditory side out there, as shown by a recent case of young girl grooming, that our youngsters need to be aware of so they don't fall victim and of course, the human trafficking side of life that goes on on our streets. Obviously its the parent's reesponsibility to warn their youngsters, but some preditors are parents and also some simply either won't or can't. Perhaps either educational information for kids could be available in schools or some other means found to protect our youngsters as we can't bring them up into this world in cotton wool - however much some of us would like to.

Also where is Mr Cameron going to call the line, will he stop just at hard porn or will he push to include some of the suggestive pop videos and songs, it could become a slippery slope.

Wonder who he will get to take on the task of sitting through watching it all - any thoughts? Peter Mand...on came to my mind, something useful for him to do as he loves to make himself useful in politics and politics useful to him.

I heard killing your first born increases the chance the second one will be more successful. Time to jump on that bandwagon I suppose.

Husbands lie about watching porn all the time too. Oddly enough, a good many of women will be wondering why their home was granted access. Or, the men may just give in, then instead of spend hours watching porn, realize their wife was busy with the neighbour during all those times he locked himself in his "office".


Ah yes.. this was about kids lying about their age. Well, good thing now, they can't lie about their age to their friends who have USB, Flash Drives filled with 1TB of porn.

Oh wait..

What's the point of this again?

I mean COME on.

There has been software available to filter the internet for parents for WELL over a decade. I remember my School network had such a filter. It was rather crude back then and blocked a whole lot of other things too but it worked. The ones available today are much more sophisticated.

There is no need for this. If parents buy a computer and an Internet connection they should educated themselves on the subject instead of expecting the Government to do it all for them.

This is just another example of parents delegating their DUTY to the government but most people are too shortsighted to see that.

Hold on I don't have kids in my household why should I have to put my name down on some list admitting that I watch the odd porn movie?
So Iam being victimised because parents are to stupid to set up decent blockers on their PC?
Should be an OPT out system.
How many poor fathers who try and sneak a quick look at some girls will now be unable to because they don't want their wife knowing?
BS absolute BS.
