Apart from being a huge waste of tax payers money, the goverment should not be medalling in peoples lives by getting they to do something they are just not interested in. It is not in the interest of some groups of people to get online and if people want to use the internet they can do so of their own accord.
This is a government drive to get everyone in the UK online by the year 2012, the government should realise that not everyone in the UK wants to get use the internet. 'Up to ten million people in the UK have never used the internet, according to figures from Race Online 2012.' Not everyone chooses to embrace the internet and they should be free to make their own decisions about whether they get online or not.
