TalkTalk have become the latest company to introduce a porn filter, meaning that one in six British homes will no longer have automatic access to online porn.

And right behind them is Sky, who are launching their filter THIS WEEK. Out of the major internet providers in the country, only BT and Virgin remain unfiltered.

And who can we blame for these annoying ‘smut screen’ filters? David Cameron, of course. Basically, he wants to rid the UK’s homes of porn. And this is the first step in doing so.

Censorship should never be turned on by default. Filters block all kinds of websites, including some that provide useful advice to children and young people.

Those are the words of Jim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group, in response to the introduction of these default censorship methods.

Now we’re not entirely sure if BT and Virgin are to follow, but the pressure to do so couldn’t be more apparent. Sky and TalkTalk have a combined total of around 10 million customers.

That’s an incredibly widespread start. And this is just the beginning.
