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.

IMO this should be met with some resistance before government get the idea that we're open to the idea of more filtering/blocking.
Obviously, anything illegal should be blocked.
I'm sick of parents bleating about there poor little children seeing naughty things when all the filters & blockers have been around for years...Parents should start being parents rather than blaming someone else and looking for a fit for all it doesn't workParents no longer have control over what their kids see. It's daft to suggest otherwise.
Parents no longer have control over what their kids seeNo longer , um, they never had if my 'long' memory serves me right. Kids are much the same as they always have been, the technology may be different - thats all.
Now you are going to make the point about watching by mistake... no worse than picking up certain books in a library or magazines at a newsagents( or more likely at school ), by 'mistake'.No I am not going to make that point actually but you seem to be forgetting that material on view or on sale in libraries and newsagents has already been censored and subject to legal controls. It has been that way for hundreds of years without causing any major issues.
You would have to look pretty hard to find material on the internet that is more capable of "corrupting innocence" (to use Cameron's words than some things available in bookshops (the works of the Marquis de Sade, for example).It's more readily available and less easy to control on the Internet and bear in mind that no one is proposing a ban on p0rn.
We are talking about kids aged from 6 to 11 here.
