Modern Day Witch Hunt - Finished? by Ernest Bywater

This is a true accounting, in a report format, of the abuse of office by a number of people, and how they cause trouble for people who dare to believe in things different to them. In this case they use the cry of 'Child Porn' to scare people into accepting what they want. The worst part of this is the government greatly changing the law but not publicly saying they did. Sadly, this matter still has not ended well, but as best as can be. 34,400 words
