because this is going to make us so more safer, not!
A mother whose daughter died at the hands of a man obsessed with violent internet porn has won her fight for a ban on possessing such images.
The government has announced plans to make the possession of violent porn punishable by three years in jail.
This is yet another nee jerk reaction to a problem that does not exist, How is stopping any one from looking at S&M porn going to stop those who would and should be in a mental asylum if not for the fact that the government has cut funding so much that we are now stuck with care in the community.
You only have to read the governments own consultation to see that out of 313 people who where questioned 223 thought the new law was a bad idea.
Their report says about 50,000 people signed a petition asking for these laws. Of those, 90 responded to the consultation in favor, ie excluding organizations - such as GCHQ - who submitted a response. Yet 223 individuals responded against. That suggests a large number of people are privately against the proposals. So this might not be a wise political move for a Government already under broad attack for dismantling civil liberties.Even the BBC is having to defend its self after being inundated with so many messages against this law that the editors of the Ten o'clock news has had to comment on the official BBC blog.
Out of 71 comments the majority think this law is a bad idea, apart from Liz Longhurst, and here 50k army (most of which probably only signed up because they where ambushed on the street and signed out of pity or guilt, after all why do you sign any thing in the street?) No one thinks this is a good idea.
I have already emailed my MP using writetothem.com I love this site and use it to talk to any of my elected representatives any time I have a problem with he way the country's run, and the best bit is they have written back 100% of the time.
So stopping letting our government get more and more detached from the majority while the vocal minority takes over!
Go and let them know how crap this law is.
