Pornography depicting rape will be outlawed as part of a government crackdown on web filth.
David Cameron today unveiled a raft of reforms to shield children from 'poisonous' websites that are 'corroding childhood'.
In a victory for the Daily Mail, the Prime Minister announced every householder connected to the internet will have their access to online porn blocked unless they ask to receive it.

Porn becomes quite boring actually. That’s if you’re normal I suppose.

Wholeheartedly agree. The soft-core stuff doesn't show me anything I haven't seen before, and the hard-core stuff doesn't show me anything I WANT to see.
Or simply use a proxy that exits outside of the UK and search from there. . .

Porn cannot depict rape, but a regular move can show cities being leveled?
No doubt, the MPs, the House of Lords, the government, and the Royal Family are exempt from this law - they need access for fact-finding purposes ...

Camera’s on every street, arrests made for overtly Christian speech, almost no real civil rights, and the British are worried about the slippery slope of porn filters?
Of course, Americans are little better.

What an outrage this POS dares talk about protecting kids from filth. He just shoved through feces marriage!
Seems I’ve read about such a society somewhere...

This has been tried in Australia and when the list of blocked sites was leaked thousands of innocent sites were also on the list. Given the experience with the IRS in the US imagine what sites would be blocked if corrupt bureaucrats and political hacks were in charge.

After Britain banned Mark Levin and Pam Geller because they are critical of Islam, I wonder what the government will consider porn - Christian sites for instance?

They say they are trying to protect children . I don’t buy it. If they were really concerned about the British people they would stop importing Mozlems. It’s an excuse for a way to eventually control ALL the content which comes in through the Net. This is only the beginning of what they will deem inappropriate to see.

Perhaps because someone experiencing a city being leveled does not instinctively desire to level cities.
But mixing in sexual cues at the same time a criminal ones is like sugar coating rat poison.

I think you mean Robert Spencer. Unless you are confusing Levin with Michael Savage. If that is the case, dont tell either one of them. They are bitter enemies.
