Yes, I know, reading the Daily Mail rots the brain, although in my defence I only saw this story because it was on the front page that Paxman showed at the end of last night's Newsnight.  David Cameron is trying to square the circle of the Mail's howling about online pornography and the resounding results of the recent consultation exercise:

David Cameron writes:

So, for those of us in the security community, it appears Dave is going to solve the problem of home users sharing computers and/or sharing accounts at a stroke.  All the issues associated with people using one login (or, more commonly, no logins) will be gone.  And, better, devices which don't have the concept of multiple users (such as those iPads which so few people have bought, and which have been so unpopular since their damp-squib launch) will now be locked to a single user and won't be shared around in households.  Excellent!  That's a major security issue solved at a stroke!
