Quote:
The filters would apply to all devices linked to the affected home Wi-Fi network and across the public Wi-Fi network "wherever children are likely to be present".

Customers who do not click on either option - accepting or declining - will have filters activated by default, Tory MP Claire Perry, Mr Cameron's adviser on the sexualisation and commercialisation of childhood, told the BBC.

The UK's biggest internet service providers have agreed to the filters scheme meaning it should cover 95% of homes.

It'll never make it through parliament. It's just one of those things politicians shout every now and again to curry favour with certain parts of the political spectrum

Many of us said that about PATRIOT II, Obamacare and just about everything in between.

the original idea of obamacare was good. I blame republitards for that mess. They refused to put through the sane idea that free healthcare should be available to all

Are you insane? Obamacare is 100% a democrat party law. No republicans voted for it.

The pulled all sorts of shit to get it through. For one, they decided just to use the version of the bill that got through the senate (democrats had a super majority) and have the house vote on that one (which is illegal, as all bills dealing with taxation must originate in the house). The democrats had a majority in the house at the time, though because of their shenanigans with Obamacare they were thrown out on their asses come midterm.

Obamacare is a democrat party monstrosity. It's an absolute train wreck, and the only fingerprints on the entire mess belong to democrats.

It's the ignorance behind it that gets me - a block will do nothing, link

Also what do you block ? 18+ related material ? So if I want to watch a film trailer - do I have to register to receive this material, or is it just adult sites.

Blocking access just makes the parents complacent and less responsible.

Not to mention there is no such thing as "free healthcare".

I have an interesting question for you. I know you seem to hate the NHS and what it stands for but it does it's job well and efficiently and is the basis for the majority of the world's healthcare systems. My question to you is: If you had to choose would you have the NHS or Obamacare?

To convince all the Democrats to vote for it, even though it was just going to raise costs, increase the deficit, create an inefficient bureaucracy, further reduce competition, exceed the Constitutionally enumerated powers of the Federal Government, and cause an entirely new class of tax (the mandatory purchase) to come into being, when what we needed first and foremost was cost reductions.

NHS, but don't assume that's a compliment for the NHS... it's being compared to Obamacare. It's like asking if I want a douche or a turd sandwich. 100% private would be the best.

Now if you drive healthcare out of the reach of an ever increasing demography your productive work pool decreases. Not talking about the boob jobs or the lypo etc BUT the care that enables more to be productive. More that are productive and healthy, the less need to use a healthcare system AND more to chip in for those that do.

I would rather have that instead of insurance companies more interested in making a profit THEN the welfare of those they are covering. My granddad died under the old US healthcare system. Now the monstrosity that is ObamaCare is fucked up because the senate was more interested in how to keep on turning big profits instead of lesser profits but a healthier workforce

No reason for those to be run by government. For years the US had numerous charitable hospitals run by various organizations. Ever since lolgov put its unwanted head into the mix, everything has gotten worse.

you truly believe that your country would be worse off with a US NHS? Remember that you can always have private health insurance as well - we have that in the UK as well.

Also the government doesn't run it, it runs itself. They just give them the money and give them a kick up the arse if they are not performing well enough

I like a constitutional government that understands its limitations. One of those being that it's not responsible for the health care system.
