It's back on again the Nanny State, the same internet filter that Krudd tried to develop and install for Australia encouraged by the Governor General who in turn was urged on by the Royal Family. This internet filter is now being being promoted by Britain, their Elites are very concerned about the effect of the Internet on society.
Straight normal hetrosexual sex is a necessity for the perpetuation of the species and civilisation but the UK government was happy to legitimise homosexual couplings now protected in law as a marriage.

Everyone knows homosexuals couples can't produce children naturally, so less children. That does help reduce the risk to children by producing less of them!

For the children that are born, the UK government are moving to control all forms of information available from the internet to protect children from exposure to perverse sex while facilitating bringing them up in a homosexual environment, GO FIGURE!

Actually, its all just political spin. Truth is the attempted ban (not truly possible, anyway) is due to porn video streaming clogging up internet speed.

What countries, especially those in the western world are afraid of is not porn or bullying or any of the other lies they tell you about protecting you from the monsters they make you believe are out there, but information about the monsters from within our own government.
More people today have easy access to many opinions and truths and the ability to judge understanding their options, no government(especially a western one) wants that, they thrived on our ignorance and bigotry before the internet and they want to keep people dumb and susceptible to only the propaganda they feed you. Governments are terrified as forums on political parties, issues and politicians are and can, make or break them and the lies they tell the money they waste, when they violate other countries for their own gain etc....We are free the internet has made us free and not even super powers who claim liberty and freedom with duplicity of their lies can ever stop that. There is always a way to stop governments interfering with knowledge and you don't need a gun...just a computer, and governments around the world are now being held accountable to all for their actions via whistle blowers forums, hackers, and there is not a damn thing they can do about it that can't be undone. We can no longer be ruled by fear. We thank you BILL GATES, for making the pc available in every home...

All and every computer programme that can be done, be it by you or the government, CAN BE UNDONE! no matter how many security or fire walls you employ. AND YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK. and that is what governments and national security agencies are up against, the fact that anyone with any knowledge about computers often know more about them than those who are charged with the worlds security. So a filter? Pffft! that is neither here nor there to the average computer nerd.

Precisely correct. That is the reason Julian Assange is wanted for the trumped up charge of rape which supposedly occured, oh so conveniently for the U.S. government, in a country where court cases dealing with rape are done in complete secrecy.

To be a whistle blower and upset the government in the supposed democracy of the U.S. and even Australia condemns one to a similar fate as if we were living in a communist regime.

Well said, LMR especially the part about us now living in a communist regime, it feels more and more an attack on our freedom of speach and our ability to right wrongs by those who risk everything to do so, in a western country too, where most least expect it but find it more prevalent than the eastern block. Governments now fear the peoples right to voice their opinions using something lost to our leaders.....the truth.

The concentration of media ownership has done a lot to kill the once noble profession of journalism and the duty of exposing corruption and dirty governmental secrets has now fallen to internet warriors.

And we should be supporting the handful of brave internet warriors that are always prepared to keep honest journalism at the forefront, regardless of the cost...it is in our best interest, anyone that doubts this just has to see what they were prepared to lay on the line to inform us of the lies and scarmongering committed by Britain, America and Australia in the Iraqi war....these few journo's were called traitors by the ignorant, and justly hero's by those who understood that these heroic few had nothing to gain by telling the world the truth and everything to lose.

Yes it is ridiculous that such a person has to be physically and psychologically tortured and jailed simply because he was the only one with any guts that had to show the world what the US was up to.....no fair, no justice for him. The US is sending a message to silence those that would speak against their cover ups and lies.

Whilst violence is glorified anything sexual has always been demonised - it's a religious hang up that still persists to some extent even in modern secular societies.
