Correct.

This is bu***r all to do with TOTC but everything to do with ciminalizing web access

More handiwork from Claire Perry I presume. A Conservative backbencher who couldn't set her browser, so wanted a law to require mandatory filtering.

And it seem she now has one. At the time she thought all those online gambling sites could be re-purposed for this task, as they'd like the revenue and they are completely trustworthy.

Beware of anyone offering "simple" solutions to very complex problems.
