It's just reputation management for the Conservative Party, and Cameron as well. Tabloids have got behind this in a big way and it's a quick fixup which they can spin well.

And electoral votes in the UK are driven so much by the media it's scary.

You don't think this is the first step for a bigger push of controlling the web? Seems to me they use "save the children!" for laying down the infrastructure. Next they will 'block' terrorist then evil movie pirates then people who are against the government.
