Here my UK friends can discuss the impending clamp-down on their subject's Internet freedom. It's not as bad as Russia, but such restrictions always increase, on the grounds that it's good for the "body politic."

Orwell predicted cameras EVERYWHERE, but obviously no one in England reads the work of their own authors. Personally, on a visit there in 2003, the place was splattered with cameras and I found it creepy. (Fast forward, they're all over the US now, too.) Our TVs are still not licensed, which would cause massive rebellion here.

If some kind cousins from across the pond would like to explain to the rest of the world what the hell their Almighty Socialist Government is doing, please do it here and don't be afraid to discuss it freely in this thread. Do it while you still can. I fear some of our beloved UK members may decide to refrain from giving their government such access to personal information, and will drop away from us unless they use a proxy service. 😥

From what i can gather the only restriction being suggested is that users will have to prove that they are 18 and over.

Whats getting our intelligent politicians in a spin is the best way to do this whether it be by credit card, driving licence or whatever means. But as i understand it you will only have to do it once then you will be free to roam where ever you like. Personally i would not have many resevations in doing this ( i think credit card is probably pushing it a bit though) as after all everybody bar the man in the fucking moon seems to know my email address and is able to send me crap all the time lool. To be on the voting register you have needed to give some fucker the neccessay information already so much of it is already out there anyway flying around in the atmoshere somewhere lol.

Suppose one other way is to use a VPN thus bypassing the UK system entirely. Anyway we shall wait and see what the powers that be come up with eventually i reckon.

By the way @Foamy T. Squirrel where have you got the idea that we have a Socialist Government, yes they are crap up to a point but certainly not socialist. That lot are in opposition with Wurzil Gummage and his crack team ( a bit of an exageration lol) leading it. Though crack is rather a relevent word recently as most of them now it seems have experimented with in one form or another in past years according to their own revelations.

Sorry Foamy, we have a Conservative Government (Trump would fit in very well with them!) at the moment. As regards Internet restrictions, It does not appear to be too intrusive and there are always ways around it!

Quite agree with you pal,their main concern is stopping young teens and under from being corrupted at a young age which I must agree with in all honesty. They aren't going after perverts like us 😁😁😁

They need another Margaret Thatcher.  She brought the Unions down on their knees.  Everyone else going forward has not had the Testicular Fortitude to try what she had accomplished.

That bitch(Thatcher)will never be forgiven North of Hadrian's Wall.When the rating system on property was to be replaced by a Poll tax/council tax system she didn't have the guts to use any of the home counties(South of england/London area for fear of upsetting all the wealthy contributors living in these well to do areas who supported her.Oh no she and her cohorts that knew fuck all about Scotland decided that we would be the testing ground for this new system.Were we asked ,no chance .That arrogant cow imposed it on us whether we liked it or not.I'm sorry Stone but bringing the unions to their knees was nothing to be proud of and as for what she accomplished well that my friend is definitely a matter of opinion.For the record I am not a Communist or a Fascist.I am a Scot who wishes Scotland to be Independent so being Labour or Conservative(never)doesn't really enter into my politics.Rant over

No Politician has a Clean Track Record just look at Trump in the US tells everyone he's a Genius when he's really an Asshole who won't admit it. 

She must have done some good as she was Re-Elected a couple of times to be UK's PM for 11+ Years.

Never understood why many were so hostile against the poll tax. Everyone uses all the services so why should only house holders pay .?

Now as far as Scottish Independance ooooohhhhhh tetchy subjet there lol. All i can say to the scots is be careful what you wish for.

And Unions well, they were/are their own worst enemy lets leave it there lol.

And if you want to mention the miners, which you haven't, Labour closed far more mines than the Conservatives ever did but labour supporters conveniently ignore that point lol.....Bloody donkeys.
