Theres an article in the Independent now saying that the Tories want to regulate and control the internet in Britain.

They are authoritarian arseholes. How long before Mailwatch is deemed "subversive"?



In a shameless rip-off of that IT crowd episode where Moss and Roy let Jen "borrow the internet" for her board level presentation.

Maybe we could present Amber Rudd with an Etch a Sketch (tm) and tell her it's the "Hashtag Controller".

I don't see any Tory proposals before the Internet Engineering Taskforce.

Ergo: Manifesto Bullshit.

Yeah it's set up to fail to be honest, the sidebar of shame would be the first thing to fall foul.

Though it really is yet another example of why the NHS systems were so outdated last week, people who have fuck all knowledge pretending they can do stuff.

I bet the porn block will fuck up the moment it's launched.

A little commentary on human nature. The internet, a fantastic innovation with limitless possibility for educational purposes and what is one of its major uses? Wanking.

Its not all good though.

The internet is very high on the list of things Brexiters don't like. Disliked even more than feminism and environmentalism if I recall from one survey.

N Korea, Burma, Saudi Arabia, etc. Why is joining the ranks of countries that censor the Internet thought likely to encourage people to vote for the Nasty Party?

A fews years back the shire vicar's daughter was on one of R4 Today's light-hearted items with porn star Teresa May about how they get each other's mail. You could feel her wincing through the radio as she spun the Cameron line to be a good sport and laissez-faire about it all.

Yet it's the very thing that has given them a voice.

Because it's something new and different and they don't understand it so it must be a Bad Thing.

I suspect the answer is in reality, "it'll never happen."

Bones's post yesterday evening says it all.

Of course, it will never happen. All this serves is to underline their wholly inadequate grasp of all things digital. Remember them howling about encryption just a few short weeks ago?
