Things that look like Ireland?
The government’s ‘online safety’ bill is published.
Vague and unenforceable?
Or the end of social media as we have known it?
Wednesday: Harmful Content Czar
A colleague with better online research skills than me did some digging and found the Bill at https://t.co/ECTDueH3yg Thanks! But it really shouldn’t be this difficulT to track down such an important (or any public) Bill

i see they’re introducing the ‘charger’ clause at 3 (a)
I think that protects humans, so it’s all good.
Cages can be used to protect, Papi. Perhaps some people prefer Protection to Freedom but that doesn’t justify imposing Protection on everyone. Imposed protection is very rarely a good direction to head off in, the final destination is invariably suffocation & totalitarianism.
Bit of a jump there lad from protecting kids online to, ya know, communist China.
Something tells me that happens a lot.
I like charger simply because he gets your goat.
Why do they not wait and get a copy of the bill going through the British parliament which is apparently some piece of legislation that covers everything from pornography censorship abuse scams
Nigel, Daisy Chainsaw, Sara, the Millie Obnoxious.
Should gut BS comment shrilling.
Maybe worth it…
ah hear, since when is Milly obnoxious ?
Since NOW BABY!
suits you ;)
I quite like that as a username actually. Thanks! A very happy Friday to you.
Well played, M!
Daisy & Sara are children, they haven’t the wit to hurt. Nigel just drones you into a stupor with his off-the-shelf opinions. Millie has bit of entertaining bitchery about her, well, had.
If anyone thinks the Irish Civil Service has the chops to enforce this, well, they’re probably a Civil Servant.
This drivelling nonsense is simply a quick hand-job for Google & the rest of the Silicon Valley Wokie Nazi-schatze Brigade.
Oh, look, they’ve come all over Meehaul & Leo’s expensive suit trousers. Bloody premature ejaculators, always coming & going & going & coming & always…..too soon.
“Clean-up in aisle 6”.
“Nigel just drones you into a stupor with his off-the-shelf opinions” to a tee!
Only 75% of your hitlist is female. Vigils all over Ireland tonight and you want to drive some women off the site.
Other Incels will be disappointed in you.
It looks like “Get stuffed” could contravene 3 (a) AND 3 (b).
(b) – “fatphobia” is now a hate crime. Pointing out the link between obesity and poor health is now an offense
Who ate all the pies? Who ate all the pies?
Laws controlling the anti-social & inhumane activities of Vulture Funds, Cuckoo Funds & Financial Institutions? Legislation to facilitate the provision of Social Housing by putting manners on the lunatic County & City Managers who are stymieing it? Reorganization of our antiquated drug laws to actually deal with the problem? A set of bail restrictions that might prevent murderers & rapists reappearing on the streets to kill & rape again, while the bureaucracy crawls towards their trials?
I could go on, I do go, the list could go on but nobody can fail to see this as the Hysterical Screaming Wokery it is. Still, when Silicon Valley & it’s allies in the EU say jump, our politicians answer “how high?”.
The application of these laws is to be “determined on the balance of probabilities”. I mean, really?
This is pathetic infantilism using the brute force of the State to impose it’s illiberal, puerile worldview.
We might as well stick a fork in the ass of our Political Class & Liberal Democracy itself & turn it over.
Isn’t the internet a compete an utter disaster though, particularly social media.
Part of me hopes that the more restrictions and laws that are placed on it will lead to it’s eventual demise.
The other part of me is hopelessly addicted to it ;-)
But maybe, just maybe, someday, it’ll be like that time they changed Itchy & Scratchy – I’ll get me hoop and stick.
