Repeal the extreme pornography law
It is currently illegal to possess images of consenting adults engaged
in LEGAL activity in the privacy of ones own home. Yes that's right !
Images of law abiding adults are illegal to possess and the maximum
sentence is three years in prison even though no one did anything wrong
in order to make the images and the images were hidden from public
view. I suggest that as a minimum sections 63(1),(7)(A) and 67(2) of
the criminal justice and immigration act 2008 be repealed.
Why does this idea matter?
This law is clearly contrary to the rights to privacy and private life
and self expression as set out in the european charter of human rights.
It also violates the principal of free speech and allows for perecution
of UK citizens on the basis of their real or imagined sexuality. In
effect this is an attempt at creating 1984 style thought crimes. The
last government ignored repeated advice not to introduce this law
purely because it wanted newspaper headlines. The bill was never
properly debated in parliament and is clealy a bad law that could ruin
the lives or perfectly law abiding people and makes a mockery of
