EU to bring in great firewall

Written by Nick Farell


We love censorship
There are fears that the EU is about to bring in a Chinese style censorship system.

A great firewall of Europe will control citizens’ access to blogs, news websites and social networking services. The idea has come out of the Council of the European Union’s Law Enforcement Work Party (LEWP), a forum for cooperation on issues such as counter terrorism, customs and fraud. Its idea is to create a single secure European cyberspace.

The secure European cyberspace would have a "virtual Schengen border", it adds, referring to the treaty that allows freedom of movement within the EU but imposes controls on entry to the bloc. There would also be “virtual access points" whereby “the Internet Service Providers would block illicit contents on the basis of the EU ‘black-list’”, the proposal says.

The closed meeting was held in February, but the minutes have only gained attention this week after being leaked online. Of course everyone thinks the scheme is daft, but since everyone is on holiday, no one can be crucified by the media for being such idiots.
