Random bollocks of the week

During an otherwise coherent article about the silliness of blanket CRB checks and the absurdity of parents being barred from taking pictures of their own children in public, Nick Nunn of the Lancashire Telegraph comes out with this random bollocks.

Stricter regulations had to be brought in to try to catch perverts fuelled by the mass of hardcore internet porn that has helped some ruthless businessmen become tycoons.

And that credibility killer is only the second paragraph in the article.

So ruthless businessmen become tycoons by spreading hardcore porn on't web, and as a result, people become paedos?

I've never heard it explained like that before.

Hard core porn is a huge industry; it has been so for many years. The industry is run by business people, just like any industry, not ruthless tycoons.

See the film Boogie Nights if you want an honest and factual account of the porn industry. (Not)

I'm not sure how he accounts hard core porn with fuelling paedos. Paedophiles are an entirely different breed from your average joe who just wants a good wank after a hard day at the office.

Paedos like children. Child porn is illegal. You don't become a tycoon by selling it on the internet.

There is also a line of thinking that suggests child porn available on the internet actually reduces instances of paedophilia. Why would someone take the enormous risk of sexually abusing a child when they can switch on a PC and knock one out with little of no risk of being caught.

I wonder what Ed Vaizey would make of that one.
