Oppose David Cameron’s UK Porn Filter

I want to show support for an e-petition run by the Sex & Censorship campaign, opposing David Cameron’s proposed censorship of the internet by forcing UK ISPs to introduce a porn filter by default. Internet users would then have to opt out of the filter.

If like me you are a sensible adult and agree that Cameron’s proposal is a load of bollocks, please sign the petition, follow/like the campaign on Facebook and Twitter, and join their campaign mailing list.

The capability/tools to filter porn or any other content that is deemed of an adult nature, already exist e.g. anti-virus programs have filters for adult content, google’s ‘filter explicit results’ option. So responsible parents can already prevent their children from seeing such content.

Meanwhile the rest of us enlightened adults have no wish to be treated like school children by a nanny state. The internet should never be censored by default for any reason, especially in a Western democratic country. This is 2013 not 1984…

I would hope it will be possible for Cameron’s proposal to be challenged in European law, but if he did get his way the Conservatives have no chance of ever getting my vote again.
