stop pedophiliaLast summer, I wrote an article titled: How Internet in the UK is “Sleepwalking into Censorship.” That post detailed how plans in the UK to unveil default internet filters, sold to the public under the guise of “blocking child porn” and all sorts of other unethical and illegal activities, would actually provide a backdoor to censoring the internet.
Well it turns out it is even worse than that. Apparently, Patrick Rock, an official who helped draw up guidelines on Internet porn filters, has been arrested for child porn. You can’t make this stuff up.
From Raw Story:
A senior aide to British Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned after being arrested on suspicion of child pornography offenses, Downing Street confirmed Monday. 

Patrick Rock, 62, was arrested by officers from the National Crime Agency last month.

 

“On the evening of February 12, Downing Street was first made aware of a potential offense relating to child abuse imagery,” said a Downing Street spokesman.

 

Rock, who helped draw up guidelines on Internet porn filters, was an adviser to the Conservative party for 30 years.

 

A friend of Cameron told the Daily Mail, which uncovered the arrest, that the prime minister was “extremely shocked.”
