Cameron the porn crusader

The walls of Herculaneum are covered with vile pornography depicting sexual acts of amazing and imaginative depravity, painted into wet plaster with rare care and skill some 2,000 years ago. And the camera hadn't been invented for five minutes in the 1850's before it was being used to capture unfortunate young women who had forgotten to put any clothes on. Muybridge had hardly let the silver nitrate dry on his stop-action galloping horse pics before an assistant was using the technique to capture a creature with two backs; the polaroid Land camera's popularity owed little to instant photos of family birthday parties, VHS won over Betamax becsuse of Californian pornography and indeed it is estimated that one minute in three spent on the interweb is spent watching porn.

Cameron wants to draw a distinction between 'good' porn and 'bad' porn, in other words to regulate international porn on the internet in conformity with UK laws on sexual behaviour. Never mind that sex with a Turbot is legal in Kazakhstan, or miffling is permitted after dark in Tashkent. Oh well, good luck to him.

PR man wants more PR, what a fuquit but having said that - his wife wants this [porn blackout] not him.
Next, he'll be wanting to part the seas and save the planet from mankind's emissions or summat..........shite - he's already doin' that.

What is it with these Oxford educated jerks? Mind you, it's not just us poor bastards here in Britain - is it?

Promise the earth ex hubris central/Westminster/Washington/Brussels/Moscow..........and deliver fuck all, small wonder Cameron loves Tony so very much - if it were physically possible - he'd [Dave] bear Tony a baby or two.

I thank my god every day that I have an elite political class in place to protect me from awful things that I am unable to protect myself from!

He is a fucking windbag--he should send the slag into his office--half the shit he talks is out of her gob--she wears the pants. He won't do shit.

All censorship, is, ultimately political.
Even the Grauniad gets it:

I don't know what miffling is, but now I want to do it/have it done to me!
