Legal "The pornography filtering system praised by David Cameron is controlled by the controversial Chinese company Huawei, the BBC has learned. UK-based employees at the firm are able to decide which sites TalkTalk's net filtering service blocks." The irony. It hurts.

Chinese firm

Why criticize Cameron for choosing a Chinese firm? I mean, assuming one is on board with implementing a net censorship regime in the first place, then he might as well go to the world experts, no?

I despise the whole thing with a passion, but really would this have been any less controversial with a system developed elsewhere? I would hope people find this appalling for what it is rather than where it came from.
