    Now they've got it and someone else had to pay the political price for it, Labour might wring their hands and make political capital out of some of the grossest errors in the filters imposed by the coalition but if they get into power they will find reasons not to turn it off and none of the other parties will give them too much of a hard time over it.
    That's exactly how I see it. Even if any of the big 3 stand up against it, if they lost power I'm Aladeen positive they'd find some reason to keep it on. Maybe they'd spout that they've changed it or some carp (possibly they did, possibly they didn't), but there is no way an asset this close to 'total control' will be wilfully relinquished.

    ...The Daily Mail quoted a friend of the Prime Minister as saying: “He has known Patrick for a long time and never expected anything like this.”

    Campaigns for kiddie porn filter.
    Accesses kiddie porn at 10 Downing Street.

    At first it was possible the filter was 'deflecting attention'.. Campaigning for a filter so people didn't think he was doing it. Now it just seems to be a good ol' case of ID-10-T

    Sounds like as always their is the Political agenda beyond doing the actual job, which is protecting our kids.

    Having talk to some Parents who know very little about IT they have said they welcomed it and feel more comfortable with it. I also heard one Student who said he hated it.

    Still at the end of the day they do need to concentrate on the actual goal post instead of worrying about the linesman.
