Despite all predictions to the contrary, the Conservative Party has won the general election with enough seats to form a majority government. This means that the Conservatives will have the wherewithal to deliver on their manifesto promises which included:
- “We will stop children's exposure to harmful sexualised content online, by requiring age verification for access to all sites containing pornographic material and age-rating for all music videos.”
- “We will work to ensure that search engines do not link to the worst-offending sites.”
That these commitments were included in the Conservative Party Manifesto is because you have made it clear, through your actions and your much valued support for Mediawatch-UK, that these are important issues. Your voice has been heard and it has been heeded.
Moving forward we must now make sure that we hold the new Conservative government to their promises and ensure that these important measures to protect our children are enacted swiftly.
