#Cameron’s mouthpiece, Claire #Perry, tries to blackmail/bully #Google over #internet #child #porn fiasco using the church

v2The bounds of their delusional self-importance seem to know no bounds as Cameron’s mouthpiece, Claire Perry, tries to use the Church of England to blackmail Google into accepting Cameron’s terms.

This ridiculous scenario resembles the actions of spoiled children not getting their own way, rather than ‘supposed’ adults in positions of authority nurturing a mutually beneficial arrangement with other adults.

The latest chapter in the child porn internet filter fiasco involves Claire (‘I don’t have a clue what I am talking about’) Perry telling the Church of England to withdraw all investments they have in the internet giant.

If we were to believe anything that the government say we could easily be under the impression that Google and ISPs are doing nothing. That is wrong.

Google alone has donated £1 million to the Internet Watch Foundation, a charity which investigates images of child porn prior to the police investigating. Google and other ISPs have also pledged a further £1 million over the next 4 years.

The Internet Watch Foundation has only 5 analysts working at its offices in London!

The question is: WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT USING A CHARITY TO DO THE WORK OF THE POLICE?

If the government were serious in any way about truly tackling child sexual abuse then the funding of the Internet Watch Foundation would be a priority – not some strange porn filter rubbish that will never work.

The government should be tackling the problem at source. Finding who is responsible for abusing children – including those in their own political ranks – and making sure they are brought to justice and pay the full price for their crimes.

Perhaps the reason the government are not so keen to put more resources into finding and prosecuting the criminals who distribute this material is because the problem is not as widespread as the government would like us to believe.

Google also already has a zero tolerance policy towards child abuse imagery and recently donated $5 million to groups combatting the problem (i.e. trying to catch the abusers).

According to the Internet Watch Foundation Annual Report, the instances of online child pornography have more than halved in the past six years, with the majority of content only being accessible to those who are aware of a complicated digital route – which the average computer user remains unaware of.

In an interview with the BBC, Sir Richard Tilt, Independent Chair of the Foundation, said that those involved in distributing child abuse images have moved into new areas of technology that are difficult to access – even with the expertise the Foundation has at its disposal.

Also in the report – and contrary to another government lie – the Internet Watch Foundation supplies a list of keywords to its members (including Google) who implement restrictions as soon as they are received to ensure searches containing the terms do not produce results.

As we detailed in a previous article (Leaked Cameron letter admits using children and pornography to raise political profile – DISGRACEFUL!), all of the major ISPs already have free, easy to install and use software for their customers where parents can set the filters they want – not just porn, but anything they may consider unsuitable for their children.

Now to the idiot Claire Perry.

If the Church of England were to remove their Google investments, it is highly unlikely that such a blackmailing and bullying strategy would work. It is highly unlikely that the Church of England would have a heavy investment in Google, certainly not enough to make a dent in the internet giants. And if the church did sell their shares (through their various portfolios) someone else would buy them anyway and it is highly unlikely that it would affect the value of Google as a company!

Perry has jumped on the bandwagon as the Archbishop of Canterbury has pledged to review the Church’s investment strategy after it was revealed that some of its £5.3 billion investment portfolio included payday loan companies, and companies involved in gambling, tobacco, and alcohol. The church may also have investments in arms dealing and pornography through various portfolios.

So is Perry so delusional with a grandiose sense of self-worth (as most of the rest of the government seem to be) that she thinks that Google will capitulate to her demands through being blackmailed, or by her bullying tactics?

Bullying may have worked for her in the past, or within the Conservative party, but in the real world she is more likely to be told where to go for being such an ignorant arse.

If we lived in a democratic society, then perhaps Perry would have some idea of how to engage with other companies and people to come to a reasonable solution, instead of trying to railroad the wants and opinions of her boss.

As with members of government as a whole, Perry is trying to make a name for herself, and protect her and her government’s self-interest. Cameron has already been exposed as a liar over the internet porn debate, but chooses to ignore that and bulldoze more of his bullshit onto the public at every opportunity in the hope that it will raise his profile, and open an internet censorship backdoor after the disastrous failure of the Data Commination Bill.

Children do need to be protected, but much of that responsibility is with the parents, who have the means to stop their children accessing ‘undesirable’ content on the internet. If they are too lazy to take responsibility, or unwilling to learn how to protect their children, then they are unfit to be parents.

The government should be concentrating on making a serious effort to track down these perverts who abuse our children – not playing their silly little political games and trying to score points.

Every time Cameron speaks about his internet censorship rubbish another child is being abused somewhere in the world. Instead of wasting hot air on his own image, if he had any conscience whatsoever he would better use that time by making sure the resources were in place to bring the perverts to justice.

As with most things Cameron and his cronies say, it is all hot air and no action – unless it benefits them or their business associates.
