We must not set up network censorship

Reacting to the DfE's new consultation, Jim Killock, Executive Director of the Open Rights Group said:
 
"This can of worms pushes censorship technologies and could damage access to perfectly legitimate and innocent websites.
 
"Giving parents tools is great, but 'Nanny State' filtering using government approved technologies is bound to fail the people it is designed to protect.
 
"This is a Government looking for headline grabbing solutions to complex solutions. They need to think again."
