The chief executive of the NSPCC has called for all child abuse images to be removed from the internet in five years to ensure the 'dark corners' of the internet do not slide into being acceptable.
Peter Wanless said while the task may be huge it was important to act now to avoid it being seen as a part of life to view child abuse images on the internet.
He said all of us as a society should feel guilty while images of children being abused still exist on the internet and said he would like to see them all wiped from the web.I'd like to see Tony Blair in the dock at the Hague. Doesn't mean it's possible, never mind likely!
He said he wanted police, councils and the government to work together to tackle the issue - months after the children's charity warned that forces were struggling to cope with the number of child sexual abuse images being discovered online.Since he's (probably) not got Altzheimer's, I suspect that what this really is, is a push for 'more resources', using 'the cheeeeldreen!' as an appeal that no normal person could deny.
He added: 'Any society that allows such an evil scenario to play out uninterrupted must surely be demeaned and every one of us should feel at least a little guilty while it persists.'I don't feel guilty when bankrobbers stick a gun in a bank clerk's face. Why should I feel guilty about this?
Still, the commenters will surely pour scorn on his idea, won't they?
As Leg-Iron points out:
"They have wrecked the pubs and clubs and shut down conversation almost everywhere, Except here, on the internet. That has to go next. It lets us converse across the planet and that simply will not do. It is not under their control and they cannot bear it."They have their useful idiots in place, cheering it on...
