    Actually it's the irresponsible parents who are letting their children have 18-rated games who are the electronic child molestors. But yeah, it's just a strategy for getting elected. Like that fat simpleton Eric Pickles. He looks at what is bothering other simpletons and then makes a speech about how those things also worry him and how he's gonna do stuff about it.

    Of course, he never does anything about it. He's too busy ramming his face full of curry and chocolate digestives.

    Nader has done some good things, but he seems off base here.

    I guess he is getting pretty old.

    I don't understand what this is, so it must be wrong/ evil.


    Seems to be a general mind set for the older generations.

    How can one be an electronic child molester? Do they have three channel radio-control and twenty sinister sound effects? There was always something unsettling about those Furbies.

    You have no idea of the power of peados. This documentary will help you avoid their dangers.

    A paedophile disguised as a school!?!?

    Sweet Mary.

    Yes, I remember watching that years ago. What I absolutely love about it is that they were mocking sensationalist media (naming no names, they meant the Mail, Star, News of the World) and that same sensationalist media immediately sensationalised it, calling it the sickest thing ever in the history of sick and demanding censorship be brought back to stop anything like it being broadcast in the future. That was the Mail, who on the very same day, on the very same page they were moaning about it being sick, featured a picture of two girls under the age of 13 in bikinis. The Star did the most moaning though, calling it an outrage... only to print a picture of a 15-year old Charlotte Church with the headline "looking chest swell" and featuring phrases such as "she's all grown up now" on page 3.

    That was the British tabloid media in 2001 and it's no better today. We all know what "she's all grown up now" means in the Mail when they're talking about 13-year old girls. Roughly translated it means "Corr, look at that lads, you'd deflower that if you could get away with it wouldn't you, eh? Oh aye." But then on the next page there's a piece about how internet pornography is destroying society.
