    He wants to block images online with filters but defends opposition to Page 3 ban ?

    David Cameron defends opposition to Page 3 ban | Media | The Guardian

    I think he is more concerned that his mate Rupert won't be able to sell as many copies if it didn't have kazongas in. What a hypocritical tosspot this man is.

    The prime minister said there was a difference between newspapers, which parents could keep away from children, and the internet, where youngsters could "stumble across" legal but hardcore pornography.
    Makes sense to me.

    Except that before the Internet, I'd be willing to put money on most lads first porn "experience" being a jazz mag found in a bush over the park. Porn's always been there, only the method of finding it has changed. You'd be hard pressed to "stumble upon" hardcore porn unless you were on questionable sites anyway IMO.

    Time to stop molly coddling and start educating.

    Between the current government and Rory Cellan Jones, we're painting a fine picture of this country as technophobic idiots.

    Right. Because parents are always careful to keep the newspaper out of each of young 'uns and not just lying around on the sofa while they go for a fag out the back.

    I think the difference is that newspaper viewing doesn't have a History you can easily check, and as we can see from the recent "we've stopped paedophiles using Google for their filth", Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind is plenty good enough for Dave. Why fix the problem when you can just have the appearance of a fix? Much cheaper and easier!

    Why is it that people can't see the difference between the two things? I'm sure some people wander through life just looking for something to get uptight about.

    Not sure which side of the fence you're on there?

    Is it bad that I rip/cut page 3 out of every copy of The Sun I find in my workplace, or in doctors/dentists waiting rooms etc? imo it's pornography, so it's not appropriate for public places at all.

    Sold in this country, and freely available to kids?

    I think you're comparing apples and oranges. Yes, we stumbled across the "porno bush" as kids but the content was nothing like that which can be obtained on the internet, or like Page 3.

    Mobile phone companies block porn on their 3G connections (Well, Orange does), and there's no outrage there.

    The real issue here is that, yet again, this government is creating the illusion of "solving" the problem. The problem isn't that there is porn on the Internet, the problem is that parents aren't educated enough in E-Safety to know how to properly monitor and filter the web for themselves. Education is key, not a blanket ban that can be easily bypassed by any kid willing to spend 5 minutes looking for a proxy. There's also the very, very real possibility that once the infrastructure to ban whatever this government deems as porn is in place, they'll start pushing it further and further until we end up with the BBC and .gov websites and not a fat lot else because "did you know that other Internet users could post topless photos that your kids might look at? Best block all the forums and social networking sites for the safety of our children!"
