Cameron wants internet ban on sexual propaganda – let’s boycott the UK!
UK Prime Minister David Cameron wants to ban sexual propaganda aimed at minors from the internet. Should we boycott Madame Tussaud’s, the London Eye…heck all of London? Why not boycott the UK entirely?
Cameron says internet pornography is 'corroding childhood.' In an amazing admission and appeasement to the companies who will benefit from this; the same ones caught illegally spying, in collusion with Her Majesty’s Government, Cameron said:
"Set your greatest brains to work on this... You're the people who have worked out how to map almost every inch of the Earth from space."
Is this just risibly naked pandering from a sitting Prime Minister throwing cash and influence at corrupt technologists or:
1) He needs more money for his reelection campaign;
2) It’s a plea for a job in the private sector after he’s booted from office;
3) Or is David Cameron actually this clueless?
To give you an idea of how colossally stupid and tone-deaf on technology David Cameron is we hear that TalkTalk, the UK's fourth biggest ISP, will be outsourcing the new Cameron-sponsored censorship to a Chinese company called Huawei using a system called 'Homesafe'.
That’s right, not only does Cameron want UK workers to be paid like sweatshop slaves in China (more on this in a second), but he wants them to be spied on by Chinese Communist Party officials as well. In America we used to have something called ‘impeachment’ before Democracy failed (gone now, unfortunately). In the UK I think the only way to get rid of this clown is if the Queen dumps him. I’m not sure about this, leave comments below.
Speaking of drama queens, I don’t hear Stephen Fry talktalk-ing about this.
It hasn't been a very good week for Britain's funny man. First the Russian LGBT community told Stephen to please ‘Butt Out’ of their gay rights struggle in Russia (pointing out that he was behaving like an overly-ambitious British backed Raj trying to co-opt somebody else's country and identity).
Then he has had to endure the relentless tweets pointing out that Fry never questions the policies of Saudi Arabia, a country Britain has an imperial interest in by selling weapons to, and where homosexuals are put to death. Hello, Hello, Stephen... Are you there?
Additionally, the IOC (International Olympic Committee) has also weighed in and told Fry, basically, to please stop talktalk-ing about a boycott. It’s a really dumb idea, according the IOC.
So here we have it. The UK’s Prime Minister outsourcing internet spying chores (on its own citizens) to the Chinese while selling WMD’s to Saudis who execute homosexuals - while at the same time praising tax avoiders (read: criminals) like Google, Amazon, and Starbucks as some kind of entrepreneurial examples we should all follow and Stephen Fry says.... absolutely nothing.
To top it off, Stephen’s friend, the PM, was photographed recently visiting an Amazon warehouse facility in the UK where – as I alluded to earlier; jobs are being redefined as 'zero-hours contracts’ i.e., slave labor. While never mentioning that Amazon recently inked a deal with America’s CIA/MI6 for a $600 million ‘cloud’ surveillance deal that will put duplicitous, insider-trading, morally bankrupt, market manipulating crony capitalists and porn vendors (like Apple Computer) into the households, bank accounts and the House of Commons on behalf of every British citizen to be abused, ripped off and ultimately embarrassed by.
