(Sir Baz says this story is "days old", but we liked it too much to delete it.)
British Culture Secretary (Hey, why don't we have one of those? We should get one of those ASAP!) Andy Burnham, worried about the effect of the internets on children---good; good; we like children too--- has a solution!
Ratings for websites!
Okay, scratch what we just said about getting one of those. According to the BBC,
Film-style age ratings could be applied to websites to protect children from harmful and offensive material, Culture Secretary Andy Burnham has said.
Mr Burnham said the government was looking at a number of possible new internet safeguards.
He said some content, such as clips of beheadings, was unacceptable and new standards of decency were needed.
He also plans to negotiate with the US on drawing up international rules for English language websites.
Mr Burnham, a father of three young children, believes internet service providers should offer child-friendly web access.
Annnd....Turkey/Chicken Yoghurt has two words for Andy Burnham.
