Seems we're all headed to be living our lives as criminals in a police state. So much for exporting freedom by force.

I'm afraid all this will do is bring the law into disrepute. Having said that, until the Sexual Offences Act 2003, a good many people on the sex offenders registers were there simply for offences that would have been perfectly legal had they been committed by straights! What would be more sensible would be to subdivide the register into a serious sex offenders register (SSOR) and a minor sex offenders register (MSOR) for minor cases such as those mentioned in the article. They are minor as one cannot compare sexual innuendo made by an adult to another mature adult with the rape of a child, a grave offence indeed.

Anyone in public office who has an affair with their secretary should automatically go on to the MSOR for life - unless they voluntarilily forego their pension for life... :wink:

PS: It looks like Britain will be left defenceless if this goes through, with most of HM Forces "inside". :lol:

And it has nothing to do with making more people fall into the criminal bracket thus increasing the home office detection rates.
Its an easy prosecution, you dont expect the old bill to actually get out there and arrest those making the lives of millions miserable do you!
This government and its stupid laws, pah!

Bring on the revolution

nternet and email users can be added to the sex offenders' register for a whole slew of new offences after the Home Office drastically increased the number of relevant offences.

An unspecified range of offences related to internet and phone use has been added. Now people committing a crime that involves improper use of public electronic communications networks can be made to be subject to the strict conditions imposed by being on the sex offenders' register.


A judge or the police can decide if someone committing one of these crimes should be made the subject of a Sexual Offence Prevention Order (SOPO), which means that they are added to the register.

"We have not listed all the offences, this is an overarching offence," said a Home Office spokeswoman. "What we are talking about is nuisance calls, obscene comments or obscene use of the internet where there is a sexual nature to it."

Some crimes involving computers could previously involve someone being given a SOPO, but this new order from the Home Office, which is to be put to Parliament, would widen the range of crimes which could qualify.

"We are talking about things that are not already an offence – harassment emails to a colleague of a sexual nature, for example," said the spokeswoman. "The best example is nuisance calls, heavy breathing, obscene sexual comments."

Home Office minister Vernon Coaker said that the expansion was a question of protecting the public. "The offences may not seem inherently sexual, but could have had a sexual motive," said Coaker. "These changes are necessary to strengthen the monitoring and management of sex offenders."

Police and the courts are instructed to issue a SOPO if they believe an offender might commit a sex crime if not issued with a SOPO.

The Home Office has also increased the number of crimes which automatically result in someone being put on the register. Inciting or causing child pornography; controlling a child in prostitution or pornography; and arranging child prostitution or pornography now guarantee a SOPO, the Home Office said. The changes are to section three of the Sex Offenders' Act.
So you can be put on the sex offenders register for writing something that the police don't like but that isn't a specified offence. Great, lets start guessing what might be an offence shall we?

This Government want stringing up and the opposition too for letting them get away with it.

ReichFührer Bliar wants fcuking with a frosty mop! Oh, dear, must go, the police are at the door.

Gentlemen, do not panic, The Dear Leader (Praise be upon him) will not allow this law to be used unwisely.

After all, the Terrorism Act and Serious Organised Crime Act have not been abused at all by the state machine.

Now, I am just going to fill Porky with Avtur and light his little porcine afterburners.

This is a very very scary bit of legislation.

All those posters who have ever posted a NSFW warning on one of their posts could very easily find themselves being done under this.

Not good..

So if a telemarketer phones you and breathes a little heavy during the call can you claim it's an offence under these new laws because it might be sexual in nature?

On that basis given current research into the association between smacking children and sexual perversion in adults, could put most of the population - including the PM -onto the register! Any smacking of children has the potential to arouse sexual feelings in a person and this has been well documented for decades, though widely denied by the establishment. Perhaps now most of the establishment, judges, clergy and politicians upon finding themselves classed as sex offenders, will now shut up - after all they will have to resign or be sacked - how safe are any of them with children? For a bit of historical background reading I recommend Coaker and Bliar read some of Alice Miller's excellent books on this topic and why this change in the law will make the PM and millions of current and former parents potential candidates for the register! Talk about ill thought out legislation! :roll:

I always knew NuLabour would eventually attempt to control the internet. This disgraceful law may just be the start.

"An unspecified range of offences related to internet and phone use has been added."

WTF !!
