Tory MP blames games for 'destroying innocence'

GTA singled out

UK Conservative MP Iain Duncan Smith, once leader of the party, has attacked video games while talking with The Times, blaming interactive entertainment for destroying the innocence of British kids.

The MP believes age ratings are largely ignored, and that some games are dangerously violent in their content. Grand Theft Auto is mentioned by name.

"We are driving children to lose their childhood, and some video games are incredibly violent, like Grand Theft Auto. They are meant to be 18 but nobody cares what it says on the label," Duncan Smith offers.

The MP argues that games are another upshot of 'broken Britain', the social fabric of the country one of the Conservative Party's key concerns in the run up to this year's general election. More soon.
