New Government Jobs

More on the campaign to stop the government implementing the digital economy bill, that iniquitous piece of legislation designed to close down the porn industry and to stop you as adults looking at perfectly legal content on the internet. As usual in cases in cases like this their chosen agents are the backward thinking BBFC and so thanks to the Open Rights Group for the information below.

We have launched a spoof recruitment campaign to highlight absurd proposals in the Digital Economy Bill, which will give the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) the power to classify and censor websites, just like they do for films.

The BBFC will decide if porn sites are checking and monitoring the age of their users. If they’re not, the BBFC can tell ISPs to block sites – even though their content is legal. The only problem is that the Internet is massive so the BBFC can’t be expected to do it all by themselves. So we’re running spoof adverts for Internet Censors, who can help the BBFC classify all of the adult content on the web.

The campaign launch coincides with the start of the committee stage for the Digital Economy in the House of Lords this week. Please share the campaign and sign our petition.

Please help us by linking to this news site, if possible place our button on your own web site, if you place it we will always link back to you. If you care about your freedom please help. Remember, they will start by banning porn but then what come next?

Blog Roundup

We previously posted some caning updates and some great pictures but did neglect to feature any men being caned, well so as not to be accused of discrimination we would like to make redress and publish this from Kodders blog  It’s pretty strong stuff but I understand that Sarah has no problem finding men who want to be dealt with in this way and, well why not? She has a fascinating site here and it’s packed with very good, well thought out sequences and with some lucky guys who obviously adore her. Thanks must go to Kodders who runs a good, informative blog and keeps it well updated. Please send me details of your blog and I will review it here.

FROM SARAH SPANKS MEN

Welcome back James to Sarah Spanks Men. Well it’s been a while, over a year in fact since James was last at the site and what better way to welcome him back in Sarah Stern style especially after Sarah checked and realised James has never received a cold caning on camera, which has given Sarah the perfect opportunity to deliver a severe cold caning on the bare bottom which will be a first for James. Next to chocolate this is one of Sarah’s most favourite things ever.

Sarah has chosen a cane which is fast becoming one on her more favoured heavier thuddy implements. it’s a Reformatory Kooboo Rattan 83cms in length and 12 mm in width with a straight handle. It’s a wonderful choice for this first time cold caning as demonstrated beautifully by Sarah as she begins to deliver the hardest strokes to James’s naked bottom. He really is feeling these strokes.

After ten strokes or so James’s bottom is turning a lovely shade of red. Sarah delivers the next three strokes in succession which makes James catch his breath, Sarah has a little chuckle to herself.

Sarah describes how wonderful caning is and how much enjoyment she gets from delivering a caning because we the subbies enjoy it so much too. I (Kodders) am in total agreement. I adore the cane and I adore the challenge of a cold caning and being caned by Sarah is one of the most amazing, challenging, fulfilling experiences. If you haven’t tried it, but you’ve thought about it, you must do it as soon as possible so you too can feel this utter satisfaction of total submission for everybody’s pleasure.

Went off on a slight tangent there, let’s get back to this wonderful scene.  Sarah continues her wonderful cane strokes towards the end of the scene there are more flurries of three, four and five strokes in very quick succession.

For the record as Sarah was curious as to how many strokes, not counting the lesser cane taps about half way through the films, Sarah delivered a total of 80 of the hardest and most wonderful cane strokes during this awesome cold caning scene. Hats off to both James and Sarah, a wonderful cold caning, and thank you both for a truly remarkable and enjoyable punishment film, and Sarah, you look absolutely amazing in your beautiful black lingerie, no wonder you have such a long line of willing male bottoms waiting to go over your spanking bench.

Blog roundup 2

I do love to see a good hard caning film, it has to have a good story as well but the important thing is that both parties are well into what they are doing. There are many types of canes and they are all different, the real aficionado will know all about dragons and such like but for me I just like to see it used to effect and to see the response of the recipients. I have taken a couple of good examples here from English Spankers.

The first features a girl I really do like who takes a real punishment JESS

JESS CANED AT THE SEXY CLEANING COMPANY

Jess is from the Sexy Cleaning Company but so far she has not done much cleaning and she has not been very sexy. After a chat with her our good housewife decides that she still wants to get her monies worth from this young lady. She is well into spanking and the cleaning company girls are supposed to like being spanked but will she like the selection of canes. Well she bends over and gets her bare bottom caned, see what you think, did she enjoy it.

There is always something a bit special about watching the first caning sessions for a new girl. The one I want to show you is from Lilly, a rather mature lady who has made her only films for English Spankers, Take a look at the pictures and see what you think.

THE FIRST CANING FOR LILLY

Lilly is a mature lady making her first spanking videos for us. In this film she is about to get her very first caning. She is supposed to be a sexy kissagram girl but she gets to the job she should be doing to reveal her bottom covered in bright red spank marks. She had previously been sent by her husband to see Mr Stern for discipline and had neglected to tell the agency that she was well marked. Only one thing to do, more discipline but this time it is a severe caning as she is bent over. Hard and boy this time she does have some marks.

Blog Roundup

OK so no more nasty news at the moment we therefore have the time to report on the latest blog updates. It does seem to me that there are fewer blogs around and we have asked blog owners to email us and we will feature their blogs, but so far not a very good response, we had hoped for better but there you go.

Lets take a look at The Chiefs Spanking Blog, he always has some interesting things happening, not too sure about those pained faces though. I did like this update but there again I love anything with the amazing Amelia Jane Rutherford in it.

Cheerleader Spankings – The Dramatic Brat
Starring Amelia Jane Rutherford & Joelle Barros

Assistant coach, Joelle Barros, calls in new girl, Amelia for a private meeting during practice. Joelle has a few issues with the new British girl’s terrible attitude. Amelia has been wearing her game uniform instead of the plain practice one everyone else uses. It unsettles the other girls as she knows this causes friction in the squad. Joelle also knows she is dealing with such an annoying brat so insists that she take a good old fashioned spanking. Amelia complains and grumbles rather too loudly so she is further humiliated with her cheer panties pulled down getting spanked over coach’s lap. Earlier, Amelia had been brushing her hair whilst talking to Joelle, something which the coach had noticed and it had irritated her so decides to take the punishment s a stage further. She pushes this annoying dramatic brat further over her lap so Amelia is uncomfortably face down, ass up… getting her bare bottom whacked harder! Joelle only finishes the punishment when she is ready and ignores the continual whining from the new, embarrassed British cheerleader. This ordeal only ends when Amelia accepts her poor attitude and behaviour is wrong and that she will be a more valued member of the squad!

Some facts about banning porn

What do you think of our politicians.

UK’s EX Prime Minister David Cameron said he was going to block all online pornography, have a look at him on the BBC News   This means that every household in Britain connected to the internet will be obliged to declare whether they want to maintain access to online pornography.

Digging deeper into the subject you find out three things: firstly, how much of the UK’s web traffic is affected by the ‘corroding influence’ of pornography; secondly, see how the UK compares to other countries when it comes to adult content; and finally, understand what’s the demand for online pornography in the UK.

Porn Traffic is Bigger than all Social Networks Combined

An analysis was done of the UK’s web traffic in June 2013 and looked at by category, finding that an astonishing 8.50% of the UK’s web traffic in June 2013 took place in adult sites. To put this in context, traffic across all social networks combined accounted for 7.30% of the UK’s web traffic in June and Shopping for 6.06%.

So porn is big on the web

Only two categories surpass porn in terms of traffic volume – Search Engines and Arts & Entertainment (thanks to YouTube) which accounted for 15.65% and 9.59% of the UK’s web traffic in June.

UK porn consumption above worldwide average, but Germans take the crown

The Worldwide average share of adult traffic is 7.65%, nearly a point below UK (8.50%). Interestingly, Ireland also consumes less adult content than the UK and it’s slightly below the global average with 7.45% share of adult traffic. Stereotypes are bad but Germans take the crown when it comes to porn consumption – 12.47% of their traffic takes place on adult sites

 Searching For Porn

The fact is that most of the time people don’t just stumble upon adult content. When analysing Google UK’s outgoing traffic over the past 3 months, we see that 8.19% of searches led to Adult websites. What’s more,  the Top 20 sites receiving traffic from Google UK (list below) and 5 out this Top 20 sites are adult. Pornhub.com is the biggest winner of Google traffic and even made it to the Top 10. Over 1% of Google UK’s outgoing traffic ended up in Pornhub – that is a lot of traffic! AND IT’s A PIRATE SITE given prominence by Google.

Food For Thought

Porn is a big part of the internet. Not just in the UK but around the globe. Filtering porn sites is not an easy job yet it ultimately comes down to what people search for and what they want to see. The quick and easy access to pornography is indeed a phenomenon that the internet accelerated, but we live in a multi-device society and when there’s a will there’s a way. When people started setting up Wi-Fi networks in their homes, neighbors often “borrowed” their internet connection – soon, the favorite neighbor on the block might be the one that ‘opts in’.

Sign the petition

THE LOSS OF YOUR FREEDOM

If you value your freedom of expression and the freedom of the internet then you should seriously look at what the British government has planed for you. They are going to stop you looking at your favourite adult web sites unless you pass to them some of your most sensitive details and information and we know just how much we can trust the government to keep a secret. Please take the time to sign this petition and get all your friends to sign it as well.

So far it has a pitiful amount of signatures, is this really a measure of how concerned the kink community and the vanilla community is about the total loss of freedom. Your freedom of choice must be worth the small effort it takes to sign and to pass on this information via Facebook and twitter.

The Digital Economy Bill has passed its third reading in the Commons. It includes measures to force Internet Service Providers to block pornographic websites which don’t verify the age of users via intrusive means, and to censor legal content depicting sexual acts classified “non-conventional”.

 

This amounts to intrusive and dangerous State censorship of legal content online.

While the Government may claim that the aim is solely to protect children from viewing adult content, the reality is that these measures are unnecessary – when ISPs already provide optional filters for such content, bring severe privacy risks, and establish the precedent and framework to allow the Government to censor legal online content of which it simply does not approve.

These measures must be rejected so please follow this link and sign now.

Attending the shoot

Yesterday I was privileged to get a look at a shoot for a new series to run on Spanking Sarah web site. “This”  said Sarah, “is a rehash of a series we used to do based on St. Justs Academy for girls, we have now brought it up to date and it will be an academy for girls and boys.

As we are no longer able to punish the pupils, something to do with political correctness we have decided to punish the parents of the children who then can instil into their young monsters the ethos of good behaviour and the value of hard work, application and the need to study”.

Well the shoot was very interesting and the star for the day was the amazing Amelia Jane Rutherford, this is one stunning lady and it was a privilege to get to meet her on the set and I am able to reproduce just a few still here today and I am hoping that the series will be a success for Sarah.

Don’t think it cant happen in your country Backstage Censored

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As the direct result of unconstitutional government censorship, Backpage.com has removed its Adult content section from the highly popular classified website, effective immediately. For years, the legal system protecting freedom of speech prevailed, but new government tactics, including pressuring credit card companies to cease doing business with Backpage, have left the company with no other choice but to remove the content in the United States.

As federal appeals court Judge Richard Posner has described, the goal is either to “suffocate” Backpage out of existence or use the awesome powers of the government to force Backpage to follow in the footsteps of Craigslist and abandon its Adult advertising section. Judge Posner described such tactics as “a formula for permitting unauthorized, unregulated, foolproof, lawless government coercion.”

“It’s a sad day for America’s children victimized by prostitution,” said Dr. Lois Lee, Founder and President, Children of the Night, a leading national hotline and shelter program for victims of sex trafficking based in Los Angeles. “Backpage.com was a critical investigative tool depended on by America’s vice detectives and agents in the field to locate and recover missing children and to arrest and successfully prosecute the pimps who prostitute children.” She added, “The ability to search for and track potentially exploited children on a website and have the website bend over backwards to help and cooperate with police the way Backpage did was totally unique. It not only made law enforcement’s job easier, it made them much more effective at rescuing kids and convicting pimps.”

Backpage.com was created thirteen years ago by Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, through their newspaper company, New Times Media, to compete with Craigslist, the nation’s largest online classified ad platform. ­Larkin and Lacey were pioneers in independent journalism, establishing Village Voice Media in 1970 to provide alternative news coverage of the Vietnam war and later served as editor and publisher of twenty weekly newspapers.  

As The Center for Democracy and Technology and the Electronic Frontier Foundation have observed, the Senate subcommittee has engaged in an “invasive, burdensome inquiry into Backpage.com’s editorial practices [that] creates an intense chilling effect, not only for Backpage but for any website operator seeking to define their own editorial viewpoint and moderation procedures for the third-party content they host.”

This will not end the fight for online freedom of speech. Backpage.com will continue to pursue its efforts in court to vindicate its First Amendment rights and those of other online platforms for third party expression.

What’s new on the sites

If you want us to mention your site just get in touch, we will be pleased to do so.

Starting this week with English Spankers. Here’s what they say. “Louise does not make a very good maid but I suppose that is why I like her. It means that she is always doing something wrong and so I get the excuse to punish her. I have given her a taste of my lovely leather paddle but now more serious measures are called for. She is to be caned, her very first caning I think. Will I hold back and take it easy on her bottom? No she will get caned and caned hard.” I like the film, the caning is not over hard but it is very effective and Louise was crying like a baby before the end of the caning. She is a great looking girl, nice figure, well spoken and I understand she is a life and fashion model. Works for me.

Next a look at Spanking Sarah, although she does appear on other Strand Media sites I just love the way she hands out the punishments. She must be one of the best disciplinarians around and always seems to keep the dialogue on the films flowing a long. This film features Leo & Heather, I am not too sure of their relationship. Both young and good looking and I am getting to think that Leo has a bit of a sub side to him. Anyway, here is what Sarah has to say. “Leo & Heather have a strange relationship but when it comes to porn they both seem to like it a lot. I am going to try to cure Heathers addiction to the hard stuff with a hard caning. She is a beautiful young girl and I dont want her going astray so she gets a telling off and then she has to bend over for some good hard strokes from my cane whilst Leo looks on”. 

Don’t forget, and I know we do keep plugging this but wherever possible put a link or RSS feed to Spanking News, there are bad things happening in the UK with a repressive right wing government who are trying to make access to all spanking sites illegal or impossible and not only that they are trying to take away your privacy and make your private details available to outside parties. All the sites we feature here are based outside the UK and will NEVER divulge any information about you or your internet usage. We will shortly be publishing an article which explains just how your information is used and disseminated by people like Facebook, Twitter Instagram and others.

What has happened to democracy

Thanks to the OPEN RIGHTS GROUP for this information. Please subscribe. help protect your privacy

2016 has been a year to remember or possibly one to forget! Political upheaval and celebrity deaths aside, what did 2016 mean for digital rights?

It was the year when….

Theresa May got her snoopers’ charter

While politicians, the media and public were distracted by Brexit, the UK parliament passed the most extreme surveillance law in a democracy – the Investigatory Powers Act (IPA). ORG fought hard to limit its severe measures but only the Lib Dems, Greens and SNP suggested serious amendments, which the Tories and Labour rejected. (So you know just what you will get if you elect a gutless Labour government? A copy of a right wing reactionary Conservative government) Our Comment!

But the Courts say it needs to be rewritten

In 2014, ORG intervened in a case about data retention brought by the MPs Tom Watson and David Davis. ORG argued that blanket data retention contravened the protections set out in a previous Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) judgment. These arguments – including the unlawfulness of blanket retention – won the day and were accepted by the court. Last week, the CJEU stated, among other things, that blanket data retention is not permissible. This means that the Government is going to have to change the IPA or face another legal challenge. The fight-back begins!

The Government decided it wanted to block porn

The Digital Economy Bill, which is currently going through parliament, will compel porn sites to verify that their users are over 18. The proposals, which don’t include privacy protections, are largely unworkable because foreign porn sites could refuse to comply. Undeterred, the Government has now proposed to force ISPs to block sites that don’t apply age verification – potentially blocking thousands of legal websites in the UK. And just last week, they confirmed that Twitter accounts that link to blocked websites could also be blocked.

ORG is working to get the Government to amend the Digital Economy Bill so that privacy rights are protected. Over 18,000 people have already signed our petition against web blocking and this is going to be one of our big fights in 2017. Please sign the petition, every signature counts.

The New Year

Once again it’s time to say goodbye and then hello and then make of it what we will. What sort of year has it been, in general? Even the most optimistic amongst us would have to say it’s been a pretty shitty year. Here in Europe we have the crisis of the UK wanting, no, daring to want to take back its Sovereignty and make its own laws, this means according to most that the collapse of the Queens realm is imminent. France and Italy look to be electing extreme right wing bigots into government, America has just elected a Donald Trump to the Presidency, may your god help you,  and from Russia we have a war monger ruling the rest of the world and dictating the terms. So the world will carry on as usual and we the little people will become ever less relevant to it all.

Poverty is rife through out the western world, we the most advanced countries can’t feed or home our poor, we can’t look after our sick and we are not educating our kids to do the jobs that need doing, and we don’t have the will to change this, we are too apathetic and it’s not really our business anyway. Why have we become so complacent, what has happened to the peoples of the western world, will we really standby and watch while the other side of the world is ravaged by war, dictated to by greed and the unquenchable desire for power of a few. The sad answer is yes we will, we will because we are OK, we have a job, we have some money in our pockets, we have our kids…

OH yes our kids, our kids are pretty lucky, for the average teenager the ability to put a smart phone in front of their faces and spend their days talking nonsense to others like them is all they want and all they need, they do not know how to engage in any social discourse, how to relate face to face with others so they will be well equipped when it’s their turn to start doing the politicking and the diplomacy . Syria, starvation, deprivation, not for them. Do they even know what is happening? Some do and some are doing things about it but they will come up against the same walls and we do not encourage too much dissent, too much free thinking, so don’t break these walls down.

There are other kids though, these are the ones who are being bourn into a world we created, where they grow up knowing nothing but war and hate and poverty both of mind and spirit. These kids are going to grow up but what then? What will their out look on life be, will they be thankful to us for our inability to end what is happening in their homeland, will they thank us for passing by on the other side.  We have Palestine where a whole people are being systematically squeezed into the sea and America agrees with this illegal activity, we have the UK where MPs on Britain’s  are divided over plans that would recommend suspending UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia over alleged breaches of international law in Yemen. Why are the UK government supplying these head chopping butchers with arms? Money of course, what else would it be, they dress it up and say no, it’s because of the intelligence we get from them, so we condone torture as well.

That’s just a small look at where we are going to be in the New Year and I for one do not see it getting any better, the cause and the effect are the same. I start the year with profound sadness because I know it wont change. America had half a chance with Obama but the right wing fanatics neutered any good this man could have done and beat him down, the UK has a man called Jeremy Corbyn who has vision and has a deep commitment to socialist principles but he has been beaten down by his own people and the rest of Europe is holding its breath waiting for the collapse of their currency.

I can only wish us all a Happy New Year and hope that I am entirely wrong and that nothing written above is true.

How to avoid the UK’s new online surveillance powers

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT

Although the UK government has lost it’s case in the EU court please don’t think it will simply give up and go away, that’s not what they do when they seek to control and there are always ways around most court rulings. Our government employs experts to look at ways they can get to you, at you and inside your head, the easiest way these days is just to follow you on line. We all know the dangers of things like Face Book, what you say or display in picture there will be around in one form or another and will, as the younger members of our society find out in years to come, come back to haunt them. If you must display your life on line for all and sundry to see then you are asking for all the problems you will get. Better to be wise, we did before the internet get around with out recording our every activity and sharing it with total strangers, why do we feel the need to do it now? I am just posing the questions, I’m not interested in the answers as those who live by social media will surly die by it.

Just writing blogs like this leaves one open to trolls and other agencies to keep an eye on what you do and what you think so unless you are able to live with this and not really care about the fact of being hacked or followed then continue with your open life style.

For those who take their privacy seriously then we reprint, in part a very good article from The Verge. Read it and digest it as it may come in useful to you one day. Take particular note of the section referring to FREE services. They are NEVER FREE, they all take something from you, usually information, this goes for Google, Amazon, Ebay, PayPal and all the rest. Every time you search for something or buy something online it adds to an over all picture of you. So, don’t be paranoid, be careful but also be sure, someone is watching.

AVOID ONLINE SURVEILLANCE

The UK is about to pass into law sweeping surveillance legislation that will force ISPs and mobile operators to keep a complete record of every citizen’s browsing history for up to a year. This information will be accessible without a warrant to intelligence services, the police, and a number of other government agencies — including, bizarrely, the likes of the Gambling Commission and the Food Standards Agency.

While much of the legislation is concerned with how the government can track down serious criminals like terrorists and child abusers, it’s the wholesale collection of every citizen’s web activity that has a lot of people worried. After all, there’s very little oversight about how the information is accessed, and it’s private companies that have to store the data, there is a good chance it will get stolen by hackers at some point. (If this sounds too pessimistic, remember that in the last year alone, there have been two major attacks in the UK stealing customer data from the ISP TalkTalk and the mobile operator Three.)

So, if you’re a UK citizen who doesn’t want their browser history to end up in a government vault, how do you protect yourself?

USE A VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK

This is really the simplest advice for anyone looking to use the internet with a little more privacy. A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a service that passes your internet traffic through different servers around the world. Not all VPNs are created equal, though, and companies differ on whether or not they encrypt that traffic, or whether they keep logs of users’ activity. (This doesn’t mean recording browser history, per se, but can include basic information like “computer with IP address X used our VPN network for Y hours on Z day.”)

You’ll have to pay for a VPN to get a good one

Ed Johnson-Williams, a member of the UK’s Open Rights Group, and someone who briefs journalists and NGOs on how to avoid surveillance for a living, says that if you want quality, you should expect to pay for your VPN. In the UK this could cost between £25 and £40 a year. “That is an investment that you just have to make if you want to take privacy seriously,” says Johnson-Williams. There are free VPNs available, but he advises against them. “A free VPN company will itself probably be analyzing what sites you’re looking at, or inserting its own advertising into your webpages to make money,” he says.

The website TorrentFreak publishes a yearly survey of VPNs, and asks them questions about what information they store on their customers, where they store it, and how they deal with government requests for data. As the survey shows, most paid-for VPNs don’t keep logs and don’t hand over data, but at the bottom of the page you can find a list of companies you’ll probably want to stay away from. Some popular paid services include NordVPN, AirVPN, and Private Internet Access.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Although the police are not going to be picking up your phone conversations, or the content of your chats in Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp (not without hacking your phone anyway, and they’ll need a warrant for that), you might want to start using a more secure messaging app all the same. Experts agree that the best pick is Signal, which not only offers secure one-to-one conversations, but also group chat, and voice calling. You can download for iOS here or for Android here.

The advice in this article certainly won’t protect anyone against determined government surveillance. If the security services of the UK — or any other nation for that matter — want to hack your phone or your computer, there’s really very little you can do to stop them. But, if you simply object on principle to the idea of being watched online constantly, you might want to follow some of these steps all the same. It’s up to you.

Spankart

Is spanking fun? Well that obviously depends on   (1 Did you want it   (2Did you deserve it   (3 Do you like it   (4 Did you have a choice   (5 Is it your chosen way to spend a Saturday evening. Well they are just a few reasons why it may or may not be fun for you. As a giver of spankings I always find it fun, if it’s being given as a punishment, well that’s great, if it’s part of a sexy kinky evening, well that’s great and if I get called in to spank bottoms on peoples films well…Yes you get the idea. That’s great as well.

These days we need to have something to make us smile, to inject a little fun into the spanking world so I started looking around and discovered Spankart a rather clever concept executed by a nifty photoshop jockey and all round good egg called Kodders. This guy is getting quite a name for himself in the spanking business, he’s inventive, funny and knows that a good laugh is the best medicine when you’re feeling a little low, he also appears in a number of films on Sarah Spanks Men.

I thought that you might like to see some of his work, not all is terribly politically correct so if you get offended, too bad. Those of us who are in the spanking scene will recognize some of the situations and people and I just hope you can enjoy them in the spirit Kodders created them.

Oh, and have a very happy Christmas from us all at Spanking News. Please try to publicize our News Blog, take our RSS FEED as there is a more serious side to what we are trying to do. We do take comments on the blog so if you wish please leave them.

News From the Courts

Many thanks to The Open Rights Group for this information and for their work helping to keep our data private. You can follow them here This is once again just highlighting just how the UK is governed and how the citizenry are being manipulated and controlled. Just remember, the UK  has more experience in repression and suppression than almost any other country and they know how to go about it without telling the electorate.

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has ruled that the mass retention of our online communications data should not be allowed. The Court ruled that:

  • Blanket data retention is not permissible – it should be restricted.
  • Only data belonging to people who are suspected of serious crimes can be accessed.
  • The police and other organisations must get independent authorisation if they want to access this data.
  • You should be notified if your data is accessed.

The UK’s surveillance laws go against all of these rulings.

ORG played a part in this when we intervened in a case about the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act (DRIPA) brought by the MPs Tom Watson and David Davis. We argued that blanket data retention was incompatible with EU law and today the CJEU agreed.

Although DRIPA expires at the end of 2016, the ruling will affect the Investigatory Powers Act (IPA).

When MPs come back in January, we’re going to tell them they need to change the IPA. If not, we’ll see the Government back in court.

We could not have done this without our supporters. Please help us to undertake future legal actions by joining ORG or upgrading your membership today.

LOCKED OUT

Pandora Blake is one of the most articulate and vocal campaigners against the DEBill {Digital Economy} and against internet censorship. Please take time to look at this short film made by those involved in the spanking industry. Help defend all our liberties and our fight for sexual freedom. Please take our RSS feed for this site and publicize this site http://www.spanking-news.com wherever you can, we will endeavor to keep you informed about the changes and the creeping censorship that will affect us all.
Do not think that just because you don’t live in the UK this does not affect you, it most certainly does. All websites depend on being seen by as many people as possible, one of the largest markets for spanking porn is the UK.

If your American or French or German based websites can’t be seen in the UK they will lose a large market share, this will severely curtail their ability to continue in business. None of these sites make a great deal of money, producing films is expensive and time consuming. So, add this to the fact that if the British government are able to get away with this scheme, which will make our internet the most heavily censored outside North Korea, your country could be next. Support Pandora
In the wake of the AVMS regulations 2014, porn performers, kinksters, erotic writers and spanking enthusiasts from the UK and US talk to Pandora Blake about the implications of the new laws, how it affects them, and why porn censorship is something we should all care about.
