Not really. Our PM is "technologically challenged" but wants everyone
to think he is actually doing something he isn't.

UK ISPs are a tad pissed off with his approach. See
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23312579 which is aimed more at
presentation than reality.

But, of course, there is real problem in the UK in ISPs being forced
down the route of applying censorship. I fear that if (no, when) our
dear PM's attempts to block access to certain types of sites fails,
there will be calls to ban all tools which can possibly circumvent
such filters - such as tor.

Pity then the poor ISP who has to explain how difficult that is and that
blocking ssh/vpn/ssl etc will stop business dead in its tracks.
