That pain in the backside, Cameroid, has decided to order Google to ban child porn from the internet.
What the hell do we have as Prime Monster in this country? I’d expect someone in that sort of office to at least be able to spell IQ even if he doesn’t have one of his own. Google is not the internet, it does not run the internet, it has no power to ban anything at all. It is a search program. It does nothing else. It is not the Internet Police and it is not involved at all in the selling of domain names, the development and production of websites or their content. It lists them. It is a telephone directory for the Web. That is all.
When I was a horrible child there was no internet. There was no such thing as a home computer. Not everyone had a fridge, there were still many outside toilets where on cold days we guys had to play ‘Where’s Willie?’ and the TV was black and white. No VHS, if you missed a program you missed it. There weren’t all that many anyway and none of them were as important as a jar of lizards from the woods. We’re talking ‘Bill and Ben’ and ‘The Woodentops’ here. It’s not like there was some complex backstory to follow. Missing one was of no consequence.
Were we free of weirdo sex pervs? Hell no. We knew who to stay away from and we knew the code words – ‘do you want to see some puppies’ and so on. The pervs have always been there, but in those days the ones who were caught got a bit more than ‘community service’. If they were lucky, the police caught them first.
David Cameron is to order Google to ban child pornography from the internet in a bid to prevent further murders like those of Tia Sharp and April Jones.
It will prevent nothing. Those kinds of murders happened way before the internet. Myra Hindley, anyone? Before the mobile phone was even an idea, before the landline phone was in the house rather than in a red box at the end of the street. With Button A and Button B (who remembers that?) and a dial, rather than buttons. We are not going back into deep history. We are only going back into my childhood. Not even half a century.
Cameron has not the first clue what he is doing here, he is ordering a corporation that is not a UK corporation to do something they have no power to do and they are going to tell him to fuck right off if they have any sense. His pretend stance will achieve nothing even if it was possible to do what he wants.
Cameroid, I was on CompuServe in the early 1990s with a 56K phone line modem and a 386 I made out of bits. And I was an early adopter. Even chat forums were slow in those days. Everything was filtered through CompuServe back then but they didn’t own the internet. Nobody does, just like nobody owned the chats that used to happen in pubs before you helped to close them down and continue to do so.
As far as kiddie-fiddlers and other pervs are concerned, the internet does not matter. They use it to facilitate their perviness but that perviness will not vanish when Cameroid installs North Korean controls on us all. It will just make the pervs harder to find.
Perhaps, making it harder to find the pervs is what the Government wants. The phrase ‘methinks he doth protest too much’ comes to mind here.
He has just been Bilderberging, you know. And he won’t say what he did there.
Come on, Cameroid. Nothing to hide, nothing to fear, remember?
