Civil Liberties Campaigners Slam Snooping Claire Perry

Try as she might – and judging by her shameless sucking up she has tried – Claire Perry has still yet to be reshuffled into government. Her one consolation is that Dave has made her his adviser on childhood. The Tories’ answer to Harriet Harman is throwing herself into her new non-job, telling the Mail that parents should snoop on their children’s texts and private messages. Guido has no problem with parents seeking to protect their children from the worst of the web. But when she demands the state block adults from porn…

Perry’s nannying calls for the state to ban raunchy music videos and label airbrushed photos of celebs are even more disturbing. Big Brother Watch’s Nick Pickles is damning of the PM’s Rihanna-hater-in-chief:

“We’re not entirely sure how it fits for a Conservative MP and a newspaper usually committed to reducing state interference in our lives are able to square away issuing parenting diktats, but more concerning is the total lack of any evidence to support these claims. No research on how many parents feel they are not able to discuss this with their children. No evidence of how many children are allowed unrestricted access to the internet in their bedrooms. We’ve seen the dodgy stats underpinning this Mary Whitehouse 2.0 campaign before and now they seem to have given up on evidence-based policy altogether.”

No research, dodgy stats and giving up on evidence-based policy. Perhaps Perry would be suited for promotion after all…
