The other big news from London this week, in addition to the birth of the new prince, was Prime Minister David Cameron's announcement that the government was to take big steps in restricting the onslaught of internet pornography.

Now, the default position from internet service providers will be that pornography is blocked, unless the user specifically asks for it. This is a huge step forward… easy access and non-accountability has increased sexual addictions, and also targets children - most of whom are exposed first to porn not because they are looking for it, but because it is looking for them in the forms of pop-ups and twisted search results.

"This is," Cameron told the press, "about how we protect our children and their innocence." It's a start. And as I discuss in this week's re-video, it's a much better idea than the ones we've recently had - especially handing out plan B to children. Maybe these laws will visit America.
