I am also a pensioner but do most things on line, rarely go the bank etc. I have just got rid of my landline as the only calls I got were from people trying to convince me to spend money and join them. I feel that for todays children Internet is essential As an example my granddaughter wanted to find out how far Monarch Butterfly chrysalis stray from the home swan plant (about ten metres) as we had one that had attached itself to a deck chair over ten metres away. This is an example we would have taken much time to research this without the internet.  Results are almost immediate.  Schools should all be taking advantage of the internet as well.  it has opened up a whole new way of learning. Yes restrictions need to be put in place. But all should  have access to this wealth of information and knowledge.  Unfortunately this is not the case.  Merry Xmas to you all
