Europe tells Cameron his porn filter is illegal

David-Cameron-at-the-EU-s-007An attempt by UK Prime Minister David Cameron to control what Brits see on the internet is facing a common sense challenge from the EU.

Cameron wants everyone to be forced into using “porn filters” installed at an ISP level. Of course he says porn, but it can also be anything else that David does not think British people should be watching or reading about.

A leaked document from Brussels dated May 17 proposes to make it illegal to try to ‘manage’ web traffic, including by automatically applying parental controls.

Instead, officials want internet service providers to have to ask parents or account holders to opt-in to pornography filters.

Those who believe that children need to protected at all costs, and if possible wrapped bubble wrap until their insecure parents die of old age, claim that the move would endanger children by putting another barrier in the way of parents wanting to keep internet usage at home free from hardcore material.

For some reason they have forgotten that if kids want to watch porn then an ISP porn filter is not going to stop them.

The rule change is sneaked into a net neutrality document banning mobile phone companies or internet service providers from restricting or managing any legal content on the internet.

Of course the Daily Mail is furious and is thundering that it is terrible that these nasty smelly Europeans are stopping us have an autocratic censored internet.

It is just as well that our glorious government is going to make sure that British never see porn and is free to protect their children by leaving them with caring staff at the local pub when ever they like.
