Seems they've given up on regulating the entire Internet (odd that) and I guess the same address lists that are used to block pirate sites will have UK porn sites which don't verify age added to them.

Meaning you could probably get round this with a small ISP or changing your DNS settings.

So Something Has Been Done, with enough loopholes to get the tabloids frothing meaning yet another law in two or three years.
