'Go Away Cameron': The Chrome extension that beats UK ISP porn block

A Singapore-based developer has created an extension that promises to bypass the new porn filters imposed by UK ISPs at the behest of PM David Cameron.

Dubbed 'Go Away Cameron,' the add-on flies in the face of the Prime Minister’s lengthy battle to control the proliferation of online porn.

The extension states that its one aim is to “bring porn back” and provides users with simple instructions on how to install the plug-in.

The development comes after major Internet service providers began rolling out porn filters, following news that the government successfully passed censorship legislation in a landmark move.

Critically, the service provider filters do ask customers to opt out if they do not want explicit webpages automatically blocked. This, however, was not enough for some lusty users who are downloading the extension to have access to their preferred content from the off.

'Go Away Cameron' was created by @nubela, a Singaporean computer science graduate. Writing on the extension’s website, they said: “I built this Chrome extension to bypass [the] UK’s censorship. It is the easiest way to access blocked sites.”

“Simply install the GAC Chrome extension, login, and the blocked sites are immediately bypassed.”

Last week, it emerged that many of the major ISP’s filters are still failing to block hardcore pornography sites, and instead are missing the mark by banning websites that offer sex education and sexual health advice.
