Bit Tech: Cameron to announce block-by-default web filters

Monday, 22 July, 2013 - 21:00

The Prime Minister David Cameron is due to make a speech to a child protection charity today which pledges government support for mandatory pornography filtering on UK internet connections - a move which has privacy and anti-censorship activists concerned.

Loz Kaye, leader of the UK Pirate Party, told us: "With search engine blocks and web filters, there is no foolproof 100% block solution. It will always be too much or not enough. This is utterly technologically illiterate. It can not possibly work in the way that Cameron and the Labour Party press office wants."
