Daltrey Slams Government In Child Porn Blast

THE WHO star ROGER DALTREY has blasted the British government for failing to employ simple solutions to stamp out internet child pornography.

The MY GENERATION legend's bandmate PETE TOWNSHEND was arrested as part of an internet paedophilia swoop in 2003, but was ultimately cleared after assuring police he only visited a website once while he was researching child abuse for his biography.

And Daltrey - who supported Townshend throughout the ordeal - has commended his rocker pal for proving how easy it is to gain access to child porn sites and finance the criminals who run them.

But the gravel-voiced singer can't understand why British politicians are failing to tackle the problem and abolish it.

He says, "What's really amazing is that nobody answers the question he (Townshend) wanted answering: 'Why can't they stop it?'

"If you give your credit card details, the banks must know who you're dealing with. The servers can stamp it out. What the f**k is going on at government level? It's because there's too much money being made."
