British conservative politicians can have awful ideas too

The UK's Prime Minister, David Cameron, a Tory, has proposed sweeping new rules to crack down on pornography online. I agree with this writer from Popular Science who thinks it's a bad idea. It's overly broad, based on some really bad assumptions and most likely fated to not end well. Assuming this does make it through their legislative process the question becomes one of whether or not the next government would have the courage to repeal it, IMO.
