A public boycott of social media may be the only way to force companies to protect children from abuse, the country’s leading child protection police officer has said....and the answer is a hearty "Fuck off!"
Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead on child protection, said tech companies had abdicated their duty to safeguard children and were only paying attention due to fear of reputational damage.Just like the police when they finally get off their lazy backsides and do some real police work you mean?
“We have got to look at how we drive a conversation within our society that says ‘do you know what, we are not going to use that any more, that system or that brand or that site’ because of what they are permitting to be hosted or what they are allowing to take place.”Bit dangerous, isn't it? We might start to get the idea that we could do the same to other organisations that are not living up to our expectations.
At least Facebook or Twitter don't have their greedy hands in my tax return. Can't really say the same for you.
