British Prime Minister Blocks Off Porn on Internet as Default

According to BBC news, there is a new internet default setting for objectionable images.

Internet providers in Great Britain will now have as a default (unless otherwise specified) that internet access to pornographic sites will be blocked by filters.  Laws have been amended to declare pornographic depictions of rape are now illegal as well.

[Don’t worry, free expression advocates.  If you absolutely insist on watching digital nudity, you can toggle the filters “off”.]

Says the PM, “I’m not making this speech because I want to moralize or scaremonger, but because I feel profoundly as a politician, and as a father, that the time for action has come. This is, quite simply, about how we protect our children and their innocence.”

Well I can tell you today we are changing that. We are closing the loophole – making it a criminal offence to possess internet pornography that depicts rape.”

The article goes on to say that “the move has been welcomed by women’s groups and academics who had campaigned to have ‘rape porn’ banned.”
