Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

My MP

I have contacted my MP regarding this shambles - I have very low self esteem in UK democracy (especially considering my MP is a member of the 'main' ruling party), but if people don't stand up and get counted, our views will be steam-rolled over regardless. This has gone far enough - child pornography or incitement to violence are crimes that should be dealt with using the existing laws of each nation state, which are more than strict enough - not by destroying the freedom and openness of the greatest tool of our times. This is just an excuse used by politicians and lobbyists to further their own goals and it disgusts me.
