The ultimate in hypocracy.

After all the hoo-hah surrounding David Cameron's "decision" to censor questionable web sites, there was no mention of the kind of harassment which people can suffer on social networking sites. I wonder why not when this kind of thing happens, and it's not the first either....

Maybe he just wants to subject us all to surveillance under the cloak of "respectability"?

Re: The ultimate in hypocracy.

Where is the hypocrisy?
He suggested censoring child pornography sites and making "normal" porno site opt-in.
Makes sense to me.
The latest tragedy,as you say, concerns social networking sites  and is a different problem which will be much harder to solve.
What has he said/done that makes you think he wants to increase surveillance? That was done by the Labour Government in 2000.

That's what he says in public. Where censoring porn comes on his real to do list is anyone's guess.
Probably somewhere near the bottom if it's on there at all.
