That would be a very good idea.

Then hopefully she can be tackled on her ridiculous, ignorant and dangerous proposals and asked about her connections with the extremists (who believe things like homosexuality is deviant and sex education is wrong) behind them.

Indeed, a very good idea... it might help someone associated with Government (ie in a party where she may be heard by senior members, rather than one on the opposition side) also understand (and pass on wisdom) that petty rules to stamp anything out don't work when it comes to the internet (or do work 'a bit' if you cut your whole country off from the outside world via a censor-wall such as China has done, but even that's not completely 'protective').

Under Labour a Minister wanted to have web sites 'classified' much like films, to have 'U' 'PG' '18' but that again is clearly impractical, as content on, and ownership of, a website can change in a matter of hours, so any classification can be out of date as soon as it is made, and who would be viewing all the pages so photos related to medical procedures were not 'censored' too...

Automation can only go so far, and to scan and rescan millions of sites and billions of web pages day after day, would need more processing power than all ISPs together could fund.

I think talking to Claire Perry would be great. I think Mumsnet should also invite Dido Harding, the CEO of TalkTalk, when they do. Would be great to have her thoughts on it as she runs one of the ISPs. She could also be asked about the plans TalkTalk have in this area.
