In a statement to the House of Commons, the Prime Minister David Cameron claimed that most parents trusted the Conservatives to filter all of the pornography that is currently overwhelming the Internet-attached devices of Britain.
"People have had enough of porn being forced upon them from the Internet, with lascivious pictures of naked debauchery being behind most hyperlinks and in most bookmarks", continued Mr Cameron warming to his task, "and that's just on George Osborne's laptop. A large number of Tory MPs have come to me to show me the sort of filth that they believe the country needs to be protected from, which is why so many of them have volunteered to man the filters to keep us and our children safe from those terrible images"
When the Leader of the Opposition then asked the Prime Minister to show what kind of images would be filtered, the Commons went into private session with many MPs having brought their own USB drives to copy the banned images, purely in the interests of research.
When the public was allowed back to the Stranger's Gallery three hours later, it was to a scene of red-faced and exhausted MPs all around the Chamber, clearly flustered and angered by the images that were about to be filtered. The House voted for the Porn Filtering (Indecent Exposure) bill to go to Committee where more detailed examination of these issues could take place over the next several months or even years.
