Tricky legal measures meant that its 2018 launch was pushed back to the middle of 2019

However, just several weeks ahead of the roll-out the UK government had to issue an embarrassing retreat. Policymakers had failed to tell the European Commission about the porn-stopping plan and its wider consequences for people across the web. As a result, the block was delayed. Digital minister Jeremy Wright told the House of Commons it would be at least six months until all the paperwork could be properly completed. That means it's unlikely the porn changes will happen, if they do at all, until 2020


:-facepalm the incompetency is unbelievable.
