Government Launches Web Porn And Beheadings Rating System

by | 27th, December 2008

SKY news reports that “Websites could be given cinema-style age-ratings to limit access to ‘unacceptable’ material.”

In future all porno websites could have a little flag that tells the user that Yes! there is real porn just one click away. At last, no need to risk downloading a virus. With the new Government-approved sticker surfers will be able to engage in hours of masturbatory fun.

But hold on. Not yet.

Culture Secretary Andy Burnham has said “clearer standards” are needed to define what can be displayed online.

It is his “absolutely categorical” view that there is material on the web – such as beheadings – which should not be available to anyone.

Indeed, not. While Dancing On Ice is a challenging show, YouTube videos of agonists being sliced in two are offensive and against the common good.
