The police are seeking powers to shut down websites deemed to be engaged in "criminal" activity.
The Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) has tabled a plan for Nominet, which oversees .uk web addresses, to be given the domain closing power. Nominet said the idea was only a proposal and invited people to join the debate on the form of the final policy.
IT lawyers said the proposal would be "worrying" if it led to websites going offline without judicial oversight.
"It's not policy at this stage," said Eleanor Bradley, director of operations at Nominet.
So you thought by voting Tory, you would get 'smaller Government', less Government interference, less EU control and more freedom to live your life as you wanted? Well, now you know.
It's all the usual SMOKE AND MIRRORS. I'm too old in the political tooth to believe anything a politician tells me. Next thing, blogs will be getting shut down as the totalitarian state, exerts it's control.
George Orwell was right. He was just, 40 years premature!
