More nodding dogs green-light terrible UK.gov pr0n age verification plans
The Register
A government-sponsored committee has rubberstamped the UK's online porn age verification plans despite poking holes in the China-style surveillance plan.

Under the plans, people will be forced to hand over credit card details or scans of government-issued ID papers in order to look at pictures and videos of nookie-related activities.

...
Analysis: Economically speaking this is reverse protectionism. UK aficionados will head for foreign sites.

Wow - I see a business opportunity. Please send me a sample 'government-issued ID' and I will crank them out, suitable for scanning.

Somehow I think they might get suspicious with millions of Jason Bournes looking for ... what was that... oh, nookie-related activities in the UK, with US passports.

I wonder How Liz feels about being associated with the resurgence of Victorian morals? Will history look back and call her reign the era of Elizabethan prudes? You got a loicence to wank, mate?
