Back on 18 June, Maria Miller MP brought Internet companies to her office to talk about what can be done about various types of undesirable, offensive, adult or illegal online content.
A few weeks earlier, she wrote to some of these companies to shake them down, asking what money they could promise for an education campaign that nobody had specified, discussed or designed.
Behind this was the Prime Minister David Cameron's wish to announce something in a forthcoming statement.
We all know about that statement; in it he announced Nudge Censorship plans and that all the major Internet companies are going to install network level filtering.
At the time that Maria Miller was meeting Internet companies, we wrote with Index on Censorship, Big Brother Watch and English PEN to insist that civil society organizations be involved in discussions about any kind of censorship including nudge censorship.
