Nailing jelly to a tree (again) (1 Mar, 2018)

Can you really believe that UK politicians expect their diktat to age-verify all porn-site visitors will have any effect at all?

Do they not realise that the UK no longer has an empire that extends beyond its own borders?

Do they not realise that VPNs exist?

Do they not realise that there is no practical age-verification process to be used?

Is this nothing more than a huge joke on those who think it will work?

they can now address any concerned group and say, they have been heard and action has been taken
pollys must not actually do anything .. they just have to appear to be doing something

the fact it will achieve nothing is nowadays entirely irrelevant

this is the age of participation awards and finishing last is more celebrated than some anti-socialist who selfishly finished first
so
"they tried" is lauded more than "they did

The UK has no jurisdiction over sites operating from the USA, Eastern Europe or whatever so why would they care at all.


That's not really stopping the US from extraditing those from abroad to the US to face trial. Julian Assange, Laury Love (uk hacker to us govt websites), the FIFA officials arrested in Switzerland at the request of the FBI and of course the local lad (who lied on his immigration form) facing the same prospect.

It's becoming something of an issue, the extent of a law's boundary should cease at the country's physical border, but of late that concept has been ignored in a few high profile cases; which begs the question how many are not being reported?

concerns have been noted, addressed and actioned
what more could you ask for
ps
if you make a mistake and say no you get taken to alcohol advisory links .. but back pressing sets you back to the buying site

"Think of the children" they cry.

After all, Jimmy Saville was always thinking of them.
