Crazy new law

There is a crazy new law see http://www.backlash-uk.org.uk/bill80428.html
It doesnt make much sense to me reading it but experts say basically its aimed at bondage photos. Bondage may not be everyones cup of tea but if its between to consenting adults then what the heck.
What people are complaining about is some of the wording which makes these images obscene and as such you can go to jail if you are caught with them.
You dont care as you dont have any well there in lies the problem according to experts  if you have a copy of the avengers or Arnie film were a women is tied up that could be classified. Many mainstream films have bondage of women in it even down to John Wayne in one of his films when he spanked someone.
It seems the law has once again gone mad the idea may be good to stop porn but the wording can put everyone in prison.

The tide will turn and common sense will prevail over the PC brigade and those that exercise 'human rights' to excess, but when. Sad

Re: Crazy new law

It is well worth reading this , ( A QC`s legal opinion) which is accessed from a link on the right hand side
http://www.backlash-uk.org.uk/qcopinion.html
In particular para 15, 16, & 17 which refer to the European convention of Human Rights
also his (almost) final paragraphs 34, 35, 36.
and of course, his "conclusion" paragraph 37.
Quote

In conclusion, I consider that the legislation as proposed gives rise to real concerns as to its compatibility with an individual's rights under Articles 8 and 10 of the Convention.

Is the Lady in the horizontal position
a. screaming with pain
b. screaming with enjoyment
c. laughing so much because she is enjoying the fun & games
d. accepting the punishment

Re: Crazy new law

Thats the whole point  of these things you  could say JW is causing pain and its sexual. The problem is you could have this image and be done for it if a judge has a bad day.
Many film makers are up in arms over it as their films may be classified as porn.
