Quoting the article

"At present, the government does not propose to require UK ISPs to block
content and our policy is to pursue a self-regulatory approach wherever
possible. However, our legislation as drafted provides the flexibility to
accomodate a change in Government policy should the need ever arise."

Lot of different ways to read that depending on your paranoia level.  The
phrase "Slippery Slope" does come to mind, however...
