UK internet service provider tells porn-haters to move to North Korea

At least one U.K. Internet Service Provider has decided to defend the free and open Internet from U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron’s pornography-hating fingers.

On Thursday, British ISP Andrew & Arnolds (A&A) responded to Cameron’s announcement on Monday calling for the censorship of the Internet by stating that customers can either choose an unfiltered Internet or move to North Korea, TechEye.net reports.

“If you choose censored, you are advised: Sorry, for a censored internet you will have to pick a different ISP or move to North Korea. Our services are all unfiltered,” said the ISP in a statement.

“Is that a good enough ‘active choice’ for you, Mr. Cameron?” asked A&A.

Cameron announced on Monday that he wanted ISPs to filter Internet access their customers’ default setting by the end of the year. Customers who wanted to consume adult content would have to ask their ISPs for permission to view the content.

He also put search engines like Google and Bing on notice, stating they had until October to block adult content from their search results.

Cameron’s rationale was that easy access to adult content was “corroding childhood.”

As of July 25, prominent social conservatives across the pond in the Republican Party — former Pennsylvania Republican Senator Rick Santorum and Minnesota Republican Representative Michele Bachmann — had yet to weigh in on Cameron’s announcement, The Daily Caller’s Gabe Finger previously reported.

Bachmann and Santorum have voiced open opposition to “all forms” of adult content.

Santorum promised that if he were elected, he would ““vigorously” enforce laws that “prohibit distribution of hardcore (obscene) pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite TV, on hotel/motel TV, in retail shops and through the mail or by common carrier,” The Daily Caller previously reported.

In 2012, the Republican Party also adopted an anti-porn platform plank that closely resembled a pledge Bachmann signed vowing to “ban all forms of pornography” if she were elected president, according to Minneapolis City Pages blogger Aaron Rupar.
