Isn't this part of what the IWF http://www.iwf.org.uk do already?

This feels more like a cheap diversion tactic due to how much attention Cameron was getting and how uncomfortable it was making him over questions of Lynton Crosby's postition in and outside of the Government.

Besides if I was in the UK and setup an ssh tunnel to a VPS anywhere outside of it, I guess I could view all the porn I want but remain 'opted in' to Cameron's idealistic moral protection.
