Smut oglers told to opt in to keep web filth flowing

Cameron brandishes tool at ISPs to keep Britain clean

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Grubby smut gazers will be forced to "opt in" to view porn under government-backed restrictions to be imposed on ISPs.

PM David Cameron will propose a raft of measures today at a Downing Street meeting with Christian charity group Mothers' Union. The restrictions are designed to protect children from sexualised content.

A website, ParentPort, has been set up to feed through parents' concerns about TV programmes, adverts, products or services directly to the watchdogs overseeing each specific format.

UK media regulators accessible from the site include the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA), BBC Trust, Press Complaints Commission, Ofcom, British Board of Film Classification, Video Standards Council and Pan European Game Information.

Back in the summer, Cameron took a pop at ISPs, warning them that the government would step in to regulate sexualised content on the web if they did not provide tools to censor adult content online.

This followed a report by Mothers' Union CEO Reg Bailey, which called on British businesses to curb all marketing aimed at kids through a range of media outlets including the web.

ISPs involved include BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin.

Any customers not signing up to access porn online better revert back to the old-school method of collecting mags or, even better, trying to forge a meaningful relationship. ®
