The ratchet only goes one way

I suspect that to avoid any such "confusion by the public" in future, an ammendment will be passed to criminalise the viewing, so that fiction becomes reality after all. It's the kind of PR stunt Cameron would love to jump on, telling us all how he is singlehandedly wiping out evil, or some such meaningless phrase. And no-one will oppose it because who really wants to be the political figure to defend the right to watch a beheading video without being classed as a terrorist?
