    Tories fighting amongst themselves instead of getting on with doing what Labour can't decide on is a very disappointing look.

    That's what he's saying. Its Gove.

    For a man who struggles with clapping, he has the art of knifing colleagues in the back down to a fine art.

    People in the UK will have to prove they are 18 before being allowed to access pornography websites from next year, the government is to announce.

    Websites will be legally required to install age verification controls by April 2018 as part of a move to make the internet safer for children.

    Users may be asked to provide credit card details, as gambling websites do.
    Companies breaking the rules set out in the Digital Economy Act face being blocked by their internet provider.

    Under the plans, firms supplying payment and other services to the pornography websites could be notified about any breach.

    A regulatory body will be asked to oversee and enforce the new rules.

    It is thought this could be the British Board of Film Classification which already sets age limits for films and computer games.

    'Most robust protection'

    Digital minister Matt Hancock will formally begin the process, which was the subject of a 2016 consultation during David Cameron's government, in a written statement to the Commons later.

    Mr Hancock said: "All this means that while we can enjoy the freedom of the web, the UK will have the most robust internet child protection measures of any country in the world."

    Will Gardner from internet safety charity Childnet said: "Steps like this to help restrict access, alongside the provision of free parental controls and education, are key."

    An NSPCC report in 2016 said online pornography could damage a child's development and decision-making and had been seen by 65% of 15-16 year olds and 48% of 11-16 year olds.

    The study found 28% of children may have stumbled across pornography while browsing, while 19% had searched for it deliberately

    I am enjoying the slamming that Gary Lineker is getting over the pay disclosure.

    Jeremy Corbyn says he wasn't aware of the size of the student loans debt before the election when he said he would 'deal with it'
    Is this legit?

    I checked (The Slappy rapid rebuttal unit let me down) and it's not satire.
    So he's basically misled students twice on two separate issues now. We were taught about not trusting the old man who promises free stuff if you follow him in primary school. I guess you have to wait till university for that lesson now.

    Jeremy Corbyn was the politician who received the highest amount of abusive messages on Twitter during the campaign.

    Wonder if Anna Soubry will be quick to highlight this.

    That's shocking. Makes Labour's decision to filibuster a debate on abuse even more puzzling.

    It follows outrage at the tactics employed by Mr Trump, who promised to build a wall to stop Mexican immigrants entering the US and an outright ban on Muslims entering the country.

    Speaking at Labour’s South East Regional Conference, Mr Corbyn said Mr Trump had found an unending list of people to blame.

    He said: "Instead of offering real solutions, or the resources to make them work, he offered only someone to blame. Everyone, that is, apart from those actually responsible for a broken economy and a failed political system.

    "The Tories do the same. They have opened the door to UKIP and fanned the flames of fear. Theresa May, as Home Secretary, fed the idea that immigration was the real problem, made promises she knew they couldn’t deliver about slashing numbers and whipped up hate with ‘Go Home’ vans."

    Let's rebrand "immigration" as "crowd control" then maybe lefties will get it.

    Yes, bit awkward using New Statesman as a source but at least the searching and quoting kept you busy for the evening.

    Pointing out a false quote is a bad thing now? You've somehow gotten worse at this.
