The Times (of London) published a letter from me today welcoming the Conservatives’ proposal to address porn sites that did not have age verification but criticising the suggestion that they would fine ISPs that fail to block non compliant sites. Their letters page is behind a paywall so I cannot provide a link. Sorry.
