Erotic artist urges spanking for Jacqui Smith


@ Andrew

We already know that the Government has no problems forcing prosecutions on people for completly consenting sexual activities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Spanner). Now it will become illegal to own a picture of a legal act. Just what we need.

How many people that read this have been tricked into seeing the goatse image?

"(b) an act which results, or is likely to result, in serious injury to a person’s anus, breasts or genitals,"

If you can fit a football in it I reckon it could constitue serious injury.

Now would you be willing to hand your computer over to the police and be utterly sure that there is nothing on it that might fall foul of a badly worded, vague attempt to criminalise even more people? How sure are you that you have never looked at an act that may risk someone life? You might not have done it with your dick in your hand, it might have just been a prank a friend pulled on you. The law doesn't care. You are going to jail.

Lets not forget where and how this law came about. A very nasty individual did some nasty things and rather than blaming him, or the mental problems he suffered from, a knee jerk attempt to blame it on the stuff he looked at arose.

What happened to plain old crazy? Why does it always have to be the bands they listened to or the porn they looked at?

Doug Stanhope said it best when he claimed "You can pass any law if you have a picture of a dead kid" Counts double if the dead person was hot.

ohh and can we have a death of civil liberties type image please?

Anyway I'm done ranting. I'm of to the pub.
