I can't see it working. And is anyone going to stand up and object to the cleanfeed idea, which apparently is going to be implemented in the UK.

On the other hand it could just be typical politician-speak for attention grabbing.

EDIT Having said that, I've just had a read of their policy document,
http://alp.org.au/download/now/labors_plan_for_cyber_safety.pdf
which isn't too bad, although it does contain digs at the other party's efforts, The likeliest part to be implemented is this bit

...just as we teach Australian children about the risks of drink driving, we must also teach them how to be responsible cyber-citizens and about the importance of cyber-safety....

...Provide parents, teachers and children with up-to-date, comprehensive and age-appropriate online cyber-safety resources and assistance....


That and their cleanfeed idea don't seem too bad compared to the Chinese state of affairs.

what do you think?


So basically, they're going to provide information, rather than regulation?

Anything has to be better than the Chinese effort. As for Labor's "policy" document, this was released as part of their electoral campaign, one of the main comments about the Rudd campaign was "Me too", the Labor party has not acknowledged the Opposition where they have adopted the policies with minor re-wording. A good example is the Youth Advisory Group, this had been implemented by the previous government, IIRC under another name. Much of what they say in this document had already been implemented so, all they need to do is adjust it, which would have happened under either government.

So far, the Rudd Labor Government has done nothing to cause me to say "bring back Johnny". It has promised some great things, some, impractical, the jury is still out. The previous government made some unpopular decisions that were the right thing for the country.

It does make me wonder. I'm concerned that it is the thin edge of the wedge, although the idea has merit, it is meant to protect the most vulnerable in the community. If we follow that route, we might even ban Father Christmas from saying "Ho, ho, ho!"........ Oh, yeah, we tried that! Do we need a nanny state, I'm not so sure.

Australian govt hopes to protect from internet
The plan is to protect children. But, will it really? Is it a good idea?

What do you think?
