Credit and debit card companies should face fines if their products are used to buy child pornography on the internet, an MP says.
The Labour MP, Geraint Davies - whose motion is being debated on Wednesday - said he wanted an end to anonymity for pre-paid credit cards.
So, whatever want you might have for a pre-paid credit card, you're not allowed to have one in case you're one of the three people who buys child pornography using a pre-paid credit card.
All this means is that the whole point of a pre-paid card just goes away, and because of the actions of an excruciatingly tiny minority, everybody loses out.
Now, on face value, the "Liberal" Democrats and "small state, respecters of the individual" Tories should just laugh this out of court. But given that the Cleggeron is nothing but another pair of social democrat thugs in sharp suits, I reckon we're looking at this being shot down for appearances and then quietly smuggled in later on.
Let's wait and see...
