Pornography laws encounter "Orwell's Oversight"
This story, published today by the BBC, tells of Parliament's incredible porn habit:
Parliamentary porn consumption laid bare in official figuresMore than 300,000 attempts were made to access pornographic websites at the Houses of Parliament in the past year, official records suggest.
It does rather seem to have been predicted a month ago by my recent piece "Why we're not living in 1984 today: 'Orwell's oversight'".
#orwellsoversight Yes. Irony of net censorship idea is that it will not be long until we see which MPs do / do not use porn. @metalgordy— Nick Margerrison (@NickMargerrison) August 6, 2013
Good theories are useful because they're capable of prophecy. The web we have spun covers the entire world. Politicians who seek to tighten it do so at their own risk.
