MPs suggest introducing web blocking to tackle suicide rates in UK

Re: And so it begins...

Welcome to the thin end of the wedge.

Your right to look at a website that discusses suicide is being curtailed for your own good, citizen.

Next up, your right to look at a website that described narcotic drugs will be curtailed, because drugs are illegal.

Somewhat later, you will be prevented from looking at a website with a recipe for treacle pudding on it, because the sugar might make you fat.

Somewhat later still, the British Government will start to wonder if they shouldn't be banning VPN software...
