 Brit Mums' Condemn Porn Plan Put Forth by Liberal Democrat
Brit mums have scoffed at the ridiculous idea proposed by a Liberal Democrat plan to allow teenagers to watch and star in pornographic films.

The controversial policy has faced blistering criticism in the chat rooms of Mumsnet, a popular website for mothers, The Sun reports.

Under the Lib Dems, the legal age for viewing or appearing in adult movies will be cut from 18 to 16.

But the policy - overwhelmingly passed at the party's conference in 2004 - has now been savaged on the internet by women who claim it is "essentially legalisation of child porn".

One mum, called crystal123, fumed: "Many young people aged 12 appear 16 or 17 and could easily end up in explicit pornography.

Parenting websites like MumsNet and NetMums are seen as vital election battlegrounds.

A Lib Dem spokesman said: "Our manifesto sets out what we will do in government. This policy is not in our manifesto."
