I'd just read that...
Hard to believe that these very ministers complain about lack of investment in broadband for rural areas, complaining of an information divide in society, yet want to 'tier' the availability of sites to everyone.

Wait until the BBC has a think about this. Presumably this would affect their iPlayer (and other similar TV services). The BBC is barred from charging UK customers for such services so without net neutrality, service providers will be able to profit from carrying BBC services when the BBC itself cannot - now there's a can of worms if I've ever seen one.
I wouldn't worry too much about Ed Vaizey - he's a doughnut. The time to worry is if Ofcom backs an end to net neutrality - then it might happen.
