    I love the irony about 'consumer choice' and then wanting to put blocks on ISP.

    Also lol about the porn not accepted on mobiles. Just lol.

    She's been banging on about this from the second she was elected. Without govt support - which she has not and will not get - she can go whistle. Interesting (slightly anyway) that she's moved from pretending her views are not anti-porn to now pretty openly admitting that they are.

    Yep. It's noticable that although her campaign is apparently about adult content (obviously a popular draw for old tories) her quotes sound more like they're about ensuring everything on the net is privatised and marketable.

    She's from Nailsea. I believe this explains her stupidity.

    frogwoman I welcome your experience

    thing is some of these tories are the type of people who want to be able to sell crack in privatised booths in the kids playground, i doubt they'll take too kindly to someone wanting to regulate porn!

    MP in 'half-arsed, fuckwitted statement about Internet' shocker.

    Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt, etc.

    Spent a while staring at the new generation of MPs that lurk in the commons. Its not looking good, if we are entering an era when the system is going to collapse then picked a fine bunch to take over the wheel at just the moment the clown-car falls apart. At this rate the term consumer choice will one day be applied to forms of internment.

    She must know, surely, that this is never going to happen. I appreciate that she's guaranteed an appearance forever whenever Today has a few minutes to fill and the internet is in the news, but wouldn't you want more out of life? Poverty of aspiration :(

    She's been going on about this for some time now. I honestly just don't think she likes the sex industry.

    She's just philandering to the people who write into Points of View.

    All tories are sexual deviants and are all into auto-erotic asphyxiation.

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    then she needs to resign immediately it's no longer acceptable to be in a position of power and not understand how it works...

    in any circumstances... frankly these Luddites should be driven with flaming torches and pitch forks from their homes and dragged behind carts as suits their medieval outlook on the modern world...

    Nylock I hate 'these days'...

    Just when you thought the tories couldn't possibly demonstrate to any greater levels just how out of touch with reality they are, along comes another one to prove just how fucking wrong you could be... :facepalm:
