Cameron to order Google and rivals to rid the web of child pornography "Internet companies and search engines make their living by trawling and categorising the web. So I call on them to use their extraordinary technical abilities to do more to root out these disgusting images," he said crackLondon: is to order Google to ban child pornography from the internet in a bid to prevent further murders like those of Tia Sharp and April Jones. The Prime Minister last night said it was time for internet firms to 'stop making excuses' for failing to crackdown on 'disgusting' pornography. Google was urged to use the same effort it put into filming virtually every house and street for Google Earth to help rid the internet of violent and obscene sexual images. Until now firms have refused to act, claiming it is not their responsibility. But the Prime Minister's patience snapped after the disclosure that the killers of Tia Sharp and April Jones both viewed violent child pornography on the internet. He believes that it has swung the public behind his demand for tougher action. The Prime Minister told The Mail on Sunday last night, "I am sickened by the proliferation of child pornography. It pollutes the internet, twists minds and is quite simply a danger to children. Internet companies and search engines make their living by trawling and categorising the web. So I call on them to use their extraordinary technical abilities to do more to root out these disgusting images. That is why the Government I lead is convening a round-table meeting of the major internet companies, and demanding that more is done." "There are encouraging signs that the industry is willing to step up ganisations combating child sexual abuse," he added.
