Uk government internet porn filter adviser up on child porn charges
Shock Horror! Another Tory sex scandal!
"Patrick Rock has been closely involved in drawing up Government policy on internet porn filters. It seems that while he was filling David's head with the terrors of paedophiles he was at the centre of a police probe over images of child abuse.
Of course, this is not the first time Tories were "caught with their pants down" on this particular issue
Go figure. :shock: It appears the people attempting to limit our internet access using secret website blacklists, or surveilling our every move on the internet using hi tech secret programs as revealed by Snowden's leaks, as Cameron's GCHQ have been doing, often using the excuse of that they are protecting our children from paedophiles, are in fact themselves the very paedophiles they are supposed to be protecting us from.
To cap it all, apparently the Tories knew about this at least 3 weeks before it broke in the newspapers. And Cameron was tipped off the night before the arrest it seems. No doubt, just in case there might have been any residual juicy kiddy porn on nr.10 computers that might be found the next day to embarrass the government.
According to the mirror:
"Mr Rock was arrested in the early hours of February 13. David Cameron was made aware of the investigation the previous evening, before officers raided Mr Rock’s home.
This case is merely one of the many hypocrisies and contradictions that have arisen in relation to internet and other censorship.
I am reminded of the rather excellent and revealing documentary on the moral panics of the "video nasties" era
Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape (Video 2010) - IMDb
Can we really trust the likes of Cameron and his advisors to censor, regulate and monitor our internet use?
Is it time the "moral panic" argument for censorship lost it's legitimacy?
