Petition o' the day. Someone's been quite, erm, /brave/

Given that you have to include an e-mail when petitioning No 10, would you feel bold enough to petition thus?:

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Remove the Bill outlawing the possession of extreme pornography".

He makes a hard core libertarian argument in support:  "There is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable right than to his own life. No matter what the content of a video or image, the possesion and viewing of such material has no effect on anyone except the person who views or possesses it. To police what a man can put into his own body and mind is outrageous".

Can't say I fancy his chances of getting the law overturned, but I do fancy his chances of  interesting the porn squad.

That law is classic Labour populist knee-jerk cr^p. The problem is trying to explain to stupid Mail types why it is a load of cr^p. Perhaps this gentleman is confident of his good character to allow him to raise his head above the parapet?

Indeed it is. I believe one set of campaigners nominated the various paintings of Leda & the Swan as being ripe for banning under the legislation.
