Cameron Announces Nationwide Porn Block

Today, news of David Cameron’s latest pledge is receiving mixed reviews from the nation.


With the notion of internet pornography ‘corroding childhood’, the Prime Minister has announced that each of the 19 million homes in the UK will have access to porn revoked, unless they ‘opt in’ for it it with their internet provider.

By the end of 2014, internet providers will have to contact users and ask whether they’d like family friendly filters on or off. Large internet companies, such as Google were urged to comply with new measures based on their ‘moral duty’ to stop child abuse images online.

When speaking of violence against women and children in pornography, Cameron was quoted as saying:

‘These images normalise sexual violence against women – and they are quite simply poisonous to the young people who see them.

The legal situation is that although it’s been a crime to publish pornographic portrayals of rape for decades, existing legislation does not cover possession of this material – at least in England and Wales.

Well I can tell you today we are changing that. We are closing the loophole – making it a criminal offence to possess internet pornography that depicts rape.

And we are doing something else to make sure that the same rules apply online as they do offline. There are some examples of extreme pornography that are so bad that you can’t even buy this material in a licensed sex shop. And today I can announce we will be legislating so that videos streamed online in the UK are subject to the same rules as those sold in shops.’

Child safety on the internet is now a secure priority of the PM and this looks to be a radical change – for the better.

If you’re not ‘opting in’ for porn with your provider, keep yourself amused with these goodies!
