    MP behind the announcement gets her blog hacked and filled with porn. Displays a complete lack of technical understanding on twitter. Blames another blogger. Is probably going to get sued.

    Don't fret, it turns out a company from that well known bastion of free speech and democracy China will be tasked with implementing the UK's web censorship.

    UK ISP on porn filters: if you want internet censorship 'move to North Korea' « Wired

    UK ISP Andrews & Arnold has publicly lambasted David Cameron's automatic porn filter decision and says it will not be using them, explaining "sorry, for a censored internet you will have to pick a different ISP or move to North Korea".

    The statement, pointed out by TechEye, might have a comical-sounding turn to it. But the people behind Andrews & Arnold feel strongly about their role as a service provider.

    "It is not our role to try and censor what you do with the internet. We do not try and log or limit what you are accessing. It is your responsibility to stick to the laws that apply to you. We have no intention of putting in place any censorship systems or using censored transit feeds."

    "Active choice" it argues, "is not a choice".

    Hmmm - just checked their basic home package - ADSL 50GB download / month. £25
    My kids would hit the 50GB in 3 days.

    Has everyone seen the latest on this: http://m.gizmodo.co.uk/2013/09/uh-oh...o-blocks-vpns/ ?

    It was only a matter of time before they started classifying other sites under it... I just didn't think it'd be this quickly!

    If a kid's smart enough to know what a VPN is and how to effectively utilise one, then he probably knows a million other ways to get around this filter.
    It would be plausible. Plausible (but still a crock...) if they said Proxies. But VPNs? Really?

    I was thinking over the weekend about this, and wonder if anyone out there in Edugeekland has looked at running Untangle/Ipcop/Smoothwall or one of the other firewall appliances on a Raspberry Pi. Having used these at home when my kids were small, installed on discard PC boxes, it would seem to be a good route to enable parents to have control. I'm not suggesting that the majority of parents could build the thing (just like the majority of kids don't understand VPNs), but that it would be a way for schools to provide support, and maybe even earn a few quid.

    But, how would the government [et al] monitor everyone?

    Same way they always have...

    I wonder if we can get our friends at Smoothwall to deny they've been paid off by MI5 to include a backdoor for them in their software?

    It always amuses me when Richard Stallman turns out to be right all along, even though at the time he get's dismissed for being a crackpot wierdo.

    Critics: "But we can just use a VPN to bypass it"
    C.Perry: "Gotta get those paedo-infested VPNs!"
    NSA: "Care. We can see it all anyway."
