And so, the UK nanny state turns to straight up censorship. Let's look at some of the authoritarian policies that David Cameron wishes to enact.

If porn is such a problem for you and your family, why not just opt into a scheme which blocks that sort of content? OpenDNS or something similar, as someone else mentioned. The end result is the same, but you don't have this worrying move towards total censorship.

There have been discussions in Ireland over whether this sort of thing will be brought in over here. already they censor such sites as TPB, and like sheep, we tend to follow the UK in many aspects of law.
