UK Prime Minister Calls for Online Porn Ban

David Cameron has developed a cunning plan, according to which when you sign up for a broadband account, you will have to confess that you really want to use it to watch porn. Cameron didn’t clarify whether you have to specify what sort of porn you want to watch.

His idea is that people will be too embarrassed to opt in. The Prime Minister’s crack team suggests that people should automatically be barred from accessing porn content unless they actually choose to view it. Along with porn, they suggest banning websites promoting suicide, anorexia and self-harm.

Of course, this move was suggested under the idea that the authorities are somehow protecting children from pedophiles. Meanwhile, Tory MP Claire Perry tries hardly to make the restrictions happen, spinning this under the title “active choice”. As usual, this idea comes from the puritan United States of America, known as the “Nudge” theory, meaning that people will do as they should if a truly open web is made tricky to get.

Major ISPs, including Virgin Media, BT, TalkTalk, and Sky, have reluctantly signed up to a code of practice and offered their subscribers a choice of whether to apply these filters, but made this entirely optional.

The weird thing is that the ministers realize such technology won’t be effective. The world’s largest and most infringing BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay has already proved that everyone can still get access to banned websites if they want to, and the ways to do so are too numerous to tackle them.

Meanwhile, children’s minister Tim Loughton told in the interview that parents don’t feel in control of what their families are exposed to on the Internet. They do want to be responsible, but find the technology too difficult, while their children are too bright and ignore them.

He says that automatic filtering can lull parents into a false sense of security. At the same time, the answer may be lying in combination of technical solutions and better education. However, since the education cuts, the children won’t get a better education.

Prime Minister explained that he wanted to explore all options which might help protect kids, but the media says he himself isn’t a very good dad, as he somehow left his own kid in the pub the other day.
