Prime Minister David Cameron has come under scrutiny following his latest plans to change the television watershed guidelines by no longer allowing same-sex kisses as they are deemed ‘indecent images’ that the government no longer wants to expose children.

PM David Cameron, who claims to support same-sex relationships, is reportedly backing the movement and has said he doesn’t want to expose his own children to adult themes as it can ‘take away their innocence’.

Reg Bailey, who was involved in the launch of the campaign and chief executive of Mothers’ Union who is also leading movement, reportedly said: ‘It is hard to protect children in the internet and mobile-phone age but we have to do something.

The Mail also reported that Bailey said about same-sex relations in particular: ‘For some parents, what has been considered acceptable in the past – such as that Brookside kiss – is not appropriate for children to see early in the evening.’

Programmes aired between the times of 5.30am and 9pm are deemed to be acceptable for children aged 15 and under.

After the watershed mark of 9pm broadcasters are allowed to air adult themes however in some exceptions they can air before if they are for a ‘serious educational purpose.’
