I read this (courtesy of natural20 on LJ) and thought that Ireland really needs to stop aping UK law-making.

Also getting some space in the Irish Times today is an article on internet blocking and its dubious value.

From that article, UCD Law lecturer TJ McIntyre said: "Blocking involves censorship taken on no legal basis. There is no judge, no jury and no right to be heard if you are blocked."

"The chances are it also will be used in unaccountable ways by unaccountable organisations."

Given the moral and ethical stature of our TDs of late, the mind boggles at the various unaccountable ways they might think up.
