well, as the local badmovies UK resident I can tell you this entire story is a load of fish'n'chips because Internet service providers here have already been putting blocks in place for years.
When I set up my Internet account a few years back I found that nearly half the Internet was blocked (including this place believe it or not) because - in more or less the words of the blocking screen which came up -"it may contain dangerous/harmful/pornographic material"
to unblock this filter, I didn't have to click a box, I had to phone up my service provider and kindly ask them to take the block off, and it took them about a week to do it. And it wasnt just my service provider that used this procedure, loads of others did too.
So basically this story is just David Cameron trying to make himself look like a moral guardian of the state to win more votes, not even realising his 'new measures' have already been in place for ages in most cases.
Well the British govt' made sure they found a way to get all the peoples' guns a few years back, so now they need another thing to pick on.
Sorry but I have to comment on this. I see this point being made a lot by US people. You make it sound like there was some big operation to make everyone in Britain surrender their guns - no one had any guns to surrender
. trust me, no one here was ever owning a gun for 'protection'. A family did not have a gun in the drawer just in case of burglars. There has never been any protest in the streets of England with people chanting "Give us our guns back".
People over here who do have guns are the ones who would invariably keep them whether or not the government said it was okay or not.
