While British Prime Minister David Cameron is making attempts to rustle up support for his online porn filter, it seems that cyber crime levels are still growing fast.
For some reason, Prime Minister wants people’s attention to focus on purging the worldwide web from anything he considers bad, at the same time ignoring a real cyber threat. According to the Home Affairs Committee, responsible to scrutinizing the government’s domestic policy, it is necessary to set up a “state-of-the-art espionage response team” in order to encourage corporations, banks and institutions to report hacking attempts to uncover the full extent of Internet crime.
The Committee explained that it was concerned about a “black hole” where low-level cyber crime is committed with impunity. It believes that cyber crime policing should be merged into a new unified structure as part of a shakeup of the UK’s policing structure. However, the report added that it was just the first stage to solve a real problem.
Prime Minister’s answer is to tighten up Internet porn legislation and demand that online giants block access to kids abuse content. In reality, that won’t stop online crime but will help some tabloids gloat about their campaign victories. The government is still too complacent about cybercrime, starting from identity fraud and data theft to the spreading of unauthorized images and extremist content.
In the meantime, opposition MP Keith Vaz, who is also chairman of the bipartisan committee, claimed that it is clear the United Kingdom isn’t winning the war on Internet criminal activity. Indeed, one can steal more online than you can by robbing a bank. This is why Internet criminals in 25 countries have chosen Britain as their prime target.
Industry experts admit that part of the problem is Prime Minister’s other obsession to isolate himself from EU-wide justice measures designed to address the problem. Nevertheless, EU members were also slammed for failing to do enough to stop attacks as well.

|its about time the idiot made some changes here, especially the radical muslim gangs that have took over parts of major cities and making them no go areas for british people as there attacking them . this man is nothing but a coward a sell out to the british people, he doesnt have the british peoples freedom in mind, hes sold our country out... the man is pure vermin, i thoughjt tony blair was bad enough with his war crimes but this man you just cant get any worse. we need a new government to take a stand and fight these radical muslims for hate preaching in our country, as they never get arrested for that, and before some might think im being racist, im not, i have muslim friends who think the same as me, they give them a bad name to, as it6 then labels all muslims are bad people, when they aint... its time to start looking at the real problems and stop pulling the sheets over our eyes with these silly crimes laws they can come up with to stop us thinking about the real major problem in this country....CAMERON AND HIS RADICAL FRIENDS.|
|Whaaat i can still get eztv using my normal browser and if i want private browsing i use TOR can even still get pirate bay access with tor and no one can spy on you.|

|Want to fight digital crime dear Mr, Cameron?|
Why dont you start at fighting digital crime in british tax havens like London city, Guernsey, Jersey, Isle of Man, Bermuda, British Virgin and Cayman Islands?

|grrr i hate him parliment/government all they are inerested in is messing this country up somemore and wanting and expecting a big fat pay rise for messing the country up and putting prices trying to make it impossible for people to live when it should be he government that takes the pay cut|
|So, the "man" who forgot his own 8-year old daughter in a pub, pretends to be concerned about kids sneaking a peek at some boobage on the net. Welcome to the 21st century, Dibby Cameron, where 8-year olds already have smartphones with which they can and will circumvent this pathetic publicity-whoring stunt of yours.|
|I hear they're making a film about retarded pigs, and Cameron got the lead role.|

|As the UK government, courts and entertainment lobbyists turn the national network connection into a termite-riddled mess of blocked and censored sites to rival Iran's "halal Internet," Britons are questing about for a way to get access to the free,open Internet enjoyed by people in countries where censorship is not considered a legitimate response to political problems.|
Enter Immunicity, a Web-based censorship-circumvention tookit from the same people who created the Torrenticity anti-censorship system. From a normal Web-browser, Immunicity grants access to the full Internet, without the prior restraint on publication and ubiquitous surveillance welcomed by the cowering British establishment.
Immunicity takes the form of a browser plugin that kicks in when you're trying to visit a censored site, routing your connections through its proxy. It's simple to set up and is only active when it needs to be.
