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.


You said exactly what I was going to say...

The US showed us how far "anti-terrorist measures" can go. Once the state-firewalls are up at every national provider there's nothing more to do.

And this covers only "legal measures". What about all the derogations secret services will have to protect us from evil?

It's a very sad day for UK but don't worry... Others will follow.
