Real Action For Children Not Censorship

Loz Kaye's picture

So a week in to the General Election campaign, and finally the Internet has been noticed by one of the big old parties.

It wasn't a mention of the benefit the web brings to our economy, not to open up access to technology, not to put actual figures on the vague promises in George Osborne's budget on digital infrastructure.

No, it was screaming tabloid headlines and a promise from the Tories to bring in web blocking powers, Internet regulation and what amounts to electronic ID cards.

This was all under pretence of protecting children with measures we have repeatedly pointed out that do nothing of the sort.
