Apparently the filter cost the government 2 million quid before they gave up on it. Also another Labour MP wants it reintroduced.

I wonder if that £2m could have been better spent educating adults about how to protect their children while they use the internet?

Mr Tingle is the world's premier author of erotic short stories! He'll churn out a few pages of smut on just about any subject and sell them as ebooks on Amazon for a couple of quid.

Such titles include:
'Pounded by President Bigfoot'
'Glazed by the Gay Living Donuts'
'Professor T-Rex Teaches Me Gayness'

And one of his more political pursuits:
'Domald Tromp Pounded in the Butt by the Handsome Russian T-Rex Who Also Peed on His Butt and then Blackmailed Him with the Videos of His Butt Getting Peed on'

The fact that you already know all this raises many questions.

I'm sure we haven't seen the last of this; it will find its way into some future bill in another form. It's just too politically convenient to exploit moral panic.

'Porn block' companies seek £3m in damages

Four companies that were developing age verification schemes for pornography websites are seeking damages after the government scrapped the idea.

The plans would have forced adult websites to verify users' ages or face being blocked in the UK.

Culture Secretary Baroness Morgan scrapped the scheme in October 2019 amid a wave of privacy concerns.

AgeChecked, VeriMe, AVYourself and AVSecure are seeking over £3m in damages from the government.

They have lodged a judicial review with the High Court to review the lawfulness of the decision to axe the scheme.

Scheme continues to be a farce even after it's been cancelled.

Gotta really feel bad for those private companies willing to enable overreaching state censorship and surveillance in the pursuit of profit.

They saw an opportunity to cash in. And lost. Surely this can’t be an enforceable case?

I’m sure I’d read that some of the people to push for it were those who were actually going to profit from the software blocking it.
