UK to Block All Pornography From the Internet Unless Users Ask For ItS

UK Prime Minister David Cameron will announce extensive restrictions on internet pornography tomorrow, according to the Daily Mail (which is taking full credit for these reforms).

The new measures will make it so that every household connected to the internet will have their porn blocked unless they ask to receive it. According to the Daily Mail, Cameron will announce that internet pornography is "corroding childhood."

By the end of next year, all homes in the UK will have pornography banned on it unless the users decide that they would like to tell their internet provider (which are oh so careful when it comes to user privacy) that they would like to watch some pornography from time to time. Other new regulations include adult content filters on all new cellular phones, and a ban on pornography through public wi-fi spots. Cameron will also reportedly tell Google that they will have a ‘moral duty’ to do more to stop child abuse images from showing up on searches. Pornography involving simulated rape will also be banned.

The Daily Mail, which claims it has a copy of Cameron's speech, says that Cameron will say, "I’m not making this speech because I want to moralise 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."

Of course, the only source so far on this ban is the Daily Mail itself, so tread carefully. The only thing they dislike more than barely legal co-eds is the truth.
