tick box politics
every site, even the cbeebies website, will have a tick box stating the user is 18+ to enter, job done.
until they decide that the users need to be ID certified, after all once the national ID database is up and running everyone will be able to validate against the copy on wikileaks anyway.
more rules written by people with no clue, fir people with no clue, to be enforced by people with no clue, that will only effect people with no clue in any meaningful way.
but it gets a "for the children" headline, and thats the main point
dare say it will be enforced very selectively (anto guv political stuff mostly I'd guess) can't end up picking on someone who could fight it and get a court ruling against it after all.
seriously though. we need four new "laws"
1, no law may be introduced to make illegal, that which is already illegal under a different law (i.e. no duplication)
2, laws must focus on one subject, and one subject only i.e. must be focussed on a specific goal
3, laws must be no more than five of six sides of 10pt times roman text, and the intepretation of said laws will be left to the jury, i.e. must be understandable to "the common man"
4, must not ammend a current law, they can *replace* one. i.e.
this may help, but given the current system is a hjobs creation scheme by and for the legal profession no chance.
love the idea of DBSM forum moderator having to be approved because some nit decides the forum members are vunerable adults...
btw do MPs have to be CRB checked? if not why not?
