I fear for Dr. 'Teabag', a young man who is clocking up frequent flier air-miles on the comments to this site, because they are about to sneak another law through parliament which might just result in him having his dandruff-ridden collar felt. I must confess that I had not heard anything about it but apparently next week it will be 'agin' the law to access "extreme pornography". Yes indeed, just like me you can already hear m' learned friends smacking their chops at the thought of all the fees to be earned in deciding exactly what constitutes "extreme pornography". Apparently it has all come about at the behest of a grieving mother whose daughter was butchered by some maniac who lived on a steady diet of "websites such as Club Dead and Rape Action, which contained images of women being abused and violated. "
Now, I am sure my e-friend, Dr. Teabag, would not avail himself of that sort of thing but he has admitted, indeed, proudly proclaimed, his liking for what are known in the trade as 'slice 'n' dice movies'; so, with my usual selflessness, I must warn him to beware lest the definition of "extreme pornography" turns out to be very much wider than the originators of this Bill imagined, or even dared to hope for, after all, the only people totally unaware of the inexorable law of unintended consequences are the law-makers!
