Cameron cracks down on 'corroding influence' of online pornography
• Children to be protected by automatic filtering of adult material
• Possession of violent porn to be outlawed
• Illegal image searches to be blocked




Every household in Britain connected to the internet will be obliged to declare whether they want to maintain access to online pornography, David Cameron will announce on Monday.

In the most dramatic step by the government to crack down on the "corroding" influence of pornography on childhood, the prime minister will say that all internet users will be contacted by their service providers and given an "unavoidable choice" on whether to use filters.

The changes will be introduced by the end of next year. As a first step, customers who set up new broadband accounts or switch providers would have to actively disable the filters by the end of this year.

The moves will be announced by the prime minister in a speech to the NSPCC in which he will unveil a series of measures to reduce access to pornography with a particular focus on images of child sexual abuse. He will say:

• The possession of "extreme pornography", which includes scenes of simulated rape, is to be outlawed.

• The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is to draw up a blacklist of "abhorrent" internet search terms to identify and prevent paedophiles searching for illegal material.

• All police forces will work with a single secure database of illegal images of children to help "close the net on paedophiles".

In a separate move, Twitter is to introduce a tagging system to prevent such images being posted on its service. There are now millions of pictures posted among the 2bn tweets every five days. The intention is to introduce the system, which uses a Microsoft-developed industry standard called PhotoDNA, this year if possible.

The prime minister's speech is designed to answer critics who accuse him of talking tough but failing to take action. In the most significant step he will outline detailed plans to limit access to pornography.

The Daily Mail, which has been running a campaign to crack down on pornography online, reported that the prime minister will say: "By the end of this year, when someone sets up a new broadband account the settings to install family-friendly filters will be automatically selected. If you just click 'next' or 'enter', then the filters are automatically on.

"And, in a really big step forward, all the ISPs have rewired their technology so that once your filters are installed, they will cover any device connected to your home internet account. No more hassle of downloading filters for every device, just one-click protection. One click to protect your whole home and keep your children safe.

"Once those filters are installed, it should not be the case that technically literate children can just flick the filters off at the click of a mouse without anyone knowing. So we have agreed with industry that those filters can only be changed by the account holder, who has to be an adult. So an adult has to be engaged in the decisions."

The prime minister will also announce that possession of "extreme pornography", which includes scenes of simulated rape, will be outlawed by the government. It is illegal to publish such pornography and illegal to possess it in Scotland but not in England and Wales.

Cameron will say: "There are certain types of pornography that can only be described as 'extreme' … that is violent, and that depicts simulated rape. These images normalise sexual violence against women – and they are quite simply poisonous to the young people who see them."

The Rape Crisis group welcomed the announcement by the prime minister, who will also say that the government is to legislate to ensure that videos streamed online are subject to the same rules as those sold in shops. Fiona Elvines, of Rape Crisis South London, said: "We are heartened by the government's announcement that it will close the loophole in existing extreme pornography legislation.

"The government today has made a significant step forward in preventing rapists using rape pornography to legitimise and strategise their crimes and, more broadly, in challenging the eroticisation of violence against women and girls."

In some of his toughest language against the world's largest internet providers, the prime minister will warn them they face a duty to block "sick" people searching for illegal sites online. "I have a very clear message for Google, Bing, Yahoo and the rest. You have a duty to act on this – and it is a moral duty. If there are technical obstacles to acting on [search engines], don't just stand by and say nothing can be done; use your great brains to help overcome them.

"You're the people who have worked out how to map almost every inch of the Earth from space; who have developed algorithms that make sense of vast quantities of information. Set your greatest brains to work on this. You are not separate from our society, you are part of our society, and you must play a responsible role in it."

I see where you're coming from phe, and agree that certain kinds of porn shouldn't be out there etc.

But what bothers me is that its just another bit of our freedom being taken away under the guise of 'for our own good' blah blah..

I'm quite capable of monitoring my own child's internet usage thanks...I don't need the govt to do it for me.

& when those lot start going on about ''family values'', it makes me want to throw up. :mad:

I don't watch internet porn, but I'm opting in and intend to watch some just on principle.As long as it's the stuff with that 70s wacka wacka music.

This won't do shit about porn. I can't see how it's going to block it from torrent sites. And it's not like online pedos aren't already doing stuff that's totally illegal and actively pursued. All this is is playing on people's fears of the little children watching anal porn to start introducing net censorship and make it so people like it.

There's nothing online more pornographic than David Cameron's waxwork face. Block that shit from image searches. It makes me want to vomit. "Corroding influence" - for fuck's sake, there's no greater "corroding influence" than his Thatcherite bullshit.

I suggest we start a campaign where people film themselves jacking off / flicking their bean to something seriously dirty, stick it on a DVD and post it to Number 10.

It reminds me of the Frank Zappa interview on Crossfire.

My grandson was on the internet whilst staying with me at the weekend. He is far better than me. :emb: I had to watch him really closely. He is really into Pokemon at the moment and likes to watch it on you tube. You might think he is on the Disney Channel or such like, but turn your back and he will find anything he wants before you've realised he's done it. He started to watch something that seemed harmless ..until the guy who was talking about Pokemon started swearing. He has been told that if anyone starts to swear that he has to stop whatever he is watching.

No one wants to think that their child could just as easily come across porn, so anything that might help to stop it, is a good thing in my opinion.

Children have always been able to access porn.

In the old days before the "internet" it was "the top of dad's wardrobe".

When I was at school, this one kid ran a porn distribution business. He knew this secret spot where someone regularly dumped a bunch of used jazz mags. He gathered them up and sold them round school. Made a tidy sum, lucky bastard.

You can set your own computer (or your childs) with 'parental filters' easily enough, which will automatically block anything vaguely pornographic and also anything gratuitously violent. Windows has an inbuilt option I believe.

I suppose a real whizzkid might be able to find a way round it, but I've not heard of it happening.

Yeah it does. But you can't be trusted to switch it on apparently.

I think online porn is actually a preferable option for children. You aren't confronted with the horror of confronting the fact your mum and dad actually do sexual stuff at an early age. I mean - who didn't find the thought their dad wanks seriously disturbing?

I'm still coming to terms with what I found under my parent's bed when I was looking for my Christmas presents one time.

I was in my sister's house once, a few years back, and on her shelf kind of sticking out from between a pile of clothes was a can of deoderant, so I thought, oh I might have a spray of that, so I pulled it out to find that I was suddenly holding a big green vibrator. For fuck's sake :facepalm: :noway:
