UK Prime Minister’s Children ‘Banned’ From Technology, Video Games, and Miley Cyrus

In an interview published on Sunday, UK Prime Minister David Cameron revealed that his children are banned from video games and technology. Noting that he worries about the effects of technology on his young children, the Prime Minister says that his children are banned from playing video games, using mobile phones and tablets. He also is apparently no longer a fan of Miley Cyrus because he doesn't want his children to know what "twerking is." On that we can probably agree…

Cameron goes on to talk about his TV viewing habits, the bible, other rules he puts on his children, and how he occasionally lets his children use tablets.

"We have rules," Cameron said. "At the weekend: no television in the morning. We don't do morning TV – they should be doing something." He added that his son Elwen plays football and rugby, while his daughter Nancy was taking part in an amateur opera.

    Our unelected Prime Minister everyone. No wonder he has no idea what damage the "porn block" is doing. 


    (he is unelected btw. No single party was given enough vote to form a government. He only got in by doing a deal with the Lib-dems, and then stamping all over them)

    I think he means "His children". Surly, he does not believe that any government could impose such restrictions on the whole population. I mean that would be crazy, he is not crazy. Right? Please tell me he is not crazy enough to think that.

    I kindof agree (not to the extent of the technology limiting, but Completely on Miley Ray Cyrus). But I also think that it is up to individual parents to raise their children. It is hard to limit media, as a person has little control over what is on TV, but it can be done successfully.

    Apparently so. But at the same time, why should I care what he bans his family from. Unless we are talking about how this influences his work as Prime Minister.

    The thing about technology is that it's all around us. Even if my own parents had enacted the same ban on me I still had the influence of modern technology, not to mention the access to it. And videogames? I used to play the shareware version of Doom during my lunch break, and would so if I had been banned from videogames. I'm sure the Prime Ministers' kids have friends who do not have such bans, have the technology, therefore they have access to it too. and when they get old enough to move out on their own then there is nothing he can do to stop them.

    tl;dr: If the Prime Minister's kids want access to the technology their father has banned them from, they have ways of getting to it.\
