Cameron’s censorship filter bypassed already

Written by Nick Farrell



So much for that

British Prime Minister David Cameron’s attempt to bring in Chinese style censorship in the UK has failed already. This week Cameron’s anti-porn filter was rolled out by some ISPs and already created an outcry by banning all sorts of sites that it should not.

Apparently if you are running a tech site in the UK, or a blog which calls for civil rights, Cameron will block you as a hazard to children. Nevertheless there is already an app around called 'Go Away Cameron', it's an extension for the Google Chrome browser that promises to "bring porn back," the Metro reports. Install it, and you can browse any site you wish.

Go Away Cameron "automates a private and smart proxy service to route your access around censorship so you can regain your access to your favourite blocked sites in the UK," according to the FAQ. Go Away Cameron was made by Singapore-based computer science graduate @nubela.

BT rolled out its grot filter just this week, but it was found by Newsnight to block the websites for Sexual Health Scotland and the Doncaster Domestic Abuse Helpline. Sky's filter, meanwhile, blocks six sites that help people overcome porn addiction.
