So you think there are no ways around a government implemented filter? Sorry but they are just as easy to get around. Even in heavily filtered
networks like China or North Korea people get around it and their government REALLY know what they're doing when it comes to censorship.
'Parenting is never 24/7 and do you really want to criticize people who want to protect their children'
But it is not people wanting to protect THEIR children, it's people asking the GOVERNMENT to protect THEIR children.
' in the light of Snowden that 'right' has already been eroded and this will simply be used by our draconian POBs to spy and profile people even
Exactly, we don't need more spying on our citizens, there is plenty of it already and implementing a filter on this scale will only broaden it's
This has far bigger implications than most people can imagine. What is considered 'adult content'? Does that include tabloids who report which
celebrity is wearing the lowest cut top this week? Who is sunbathing topless on which beach?
The lines are very very grey on this one and from a law perspective this will be very VERY hard to implement, if it will happen at all.
It is far easier and effective for parents to do their own filtering. The budget for this could be potentially roofless with the amount of work and
constant monitoring required.
The only ones that will be happy is OFCOM because no doubt they will receive a massive budget increase.
