    Default More red tape - Will these busibodies never stop?

    Now they want to effectively ban children from appearing on TV

    New laws could mean children disappear from TV, say broadcasters

    Children could disappear from our television screens if the Government decides to press ahead with plans to tighten regulations covering their appearance in entertainment, broadcasters claim.

    The Department for Children, Schools and Families is putting the finishing touches to proposals aimed at clarifying the rules governing reality shows such as Britain’s Got Talent and Boys and Girls Alone, which campaigners claim can cause children unnecessary distress.

    The television industry is braced for a fierce battle with children’s charities and the Government over the proposals, which will suggest that programme makers must obtain a licence from a local council virtually every time they want to include a child in a television show. Councils also want the power to do spot checks on production sets.

    The department originally intended to publish proposals last week, but last-minute submissions by broadcasters have forced it to delay. The head of one production company said: “You’ve got a whole range of people who want a super-nanny state where kids aren’t even allowed to watch television, let alone work on it. This debate will be acrimonious, to say the least.”

    No children should ever be shown on TV. That will stop all those paedo's sat at home lechering over them.

    Same principle as stopping parents taking photos or videos of school plays or sports days.

    Next you will say that kids shouldn't go to school or be seen on streets.... just in case a paedo's has a hidden camera which will take pictures of them and use it for their own entertainment.
    If your company is the best place to work in, for a mere £500 p/d, you can advertise here.

    Except for drugged-up, knife-wielding hoodies, when do you ever see kids out of doors any more?

    It has become this government's unstated aim that we should always assume the worst in people. My belief is that this is a symptom of any party that has a prolonged period in office; they get ever more desperate to hold onto power and exaggerate internal and external threats.
    Once the populous believes there is a terrorist/mugger/sexual predator etc. around every corner they can, and indeed do, pass legislation that infringes our liberties and criminalises more of our behaviour.
