Every household in the UK is to have #*$!ography blocked by their internet provider unless they choose to receive it, David Cameron is to announce.
In addition, Mr Cameron will say possessing online #*$!ography depicting rape will be illegal, bringing England and Wales in line with Scotland.
Kids, being kids, do look for it and they know how to find it.
The #*$!ography filtering system praised by David Cameron is controlled by the controversial Chinese company Huawei, the BBC has learned.
UK-based employees at the firm are able to decide which sites TalkTalk's net filtering service blocks.Chinese firm Huawei controls net filter praised by PM [bbc.co.uk]
On Monday the Prime Minister said TalkTalk had shown "great leadership" in setting up its system, Homesafe, which it has offered to customers since 2011.
TalkTalk told the BBC it was comfortable with its relationship with Huawei, and that the service was very popular.
Homesafe is a voluntary scheme which allows subscribers to select categories - including social media, gambling and #*$!ography - that they want blocked.
Customers who do not want filtering still have their traffic routed through the system, but matches to Huawei's database are dismissed rather than acted upon.
@BeeDeeDubbleU I don't know how old you are ,but I am old ! I remember being about 7 and being shown certain magazines ! It's not new , kids are , quite rightly, curious, and the more naughty the better.Yes, that's precisely the point I am making. You have to put barriers in their way to the bad stuff.
This is the whole point of the exercise. Adults can opt in if they chose. What's wrong with that?
