Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated

New international agreements should be introduced to regulate the internet in the light of the London Bridge terror attack, Theresa May has said.

The Prime Minister said introducing new rules for cyberspace would “deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online” and that technology firms were not currently doing enough.

The Prime Minister made the comments outside Downing Street on Sunday morning in the aftermath of the van and knife attack that saw seven people killed and dozens injured.

“We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed – yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide,” Ms May said.

“We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements to regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.”

The call was one plank in Ms May’s speech following the attack. The Prime Minister also said Britain was too tolerant of extremism and that “pluralistic” British values had to be established as superior.

She warned there was “a new trend in the threat we face” and that while the three recent terror attacks in the UK were not linked by “common networks”, they were “bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamic extremism”.

The Conservative manifesto pledges regulation of the internet, including forcing internet providers to participate in counter-extremism drives and making it more difficult to access pornography.

Ms May’s speech is thought to be the first time she has publicly called for international cooperation in bringing forward more red tape to cyberspace, however.

The intervention comes after the introduction of the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 – dubbed the “Snooper’s Charter” – which expands the powers of spying agencies and the Government over the internet.

The Act, championed by Ms May, requires internet service providers to maintain a list of visited websites for all internet users for a year and gives intelligence agencies more powers to intercept online communications. Police can access the stored browsing history without any warrant or court order.

The PM’s comments come after the third terror attack on the UK in three months. A car and knife attack on Westminster in March left five people dead, while a bomb attack at a concert in Manchester two weeks ago killed 22.

  1. she got the fingers in THEY- cookie jar 😦

  2. As if the internet had anything to do with it – try investigating the security services – lol

    • bingo.
      but no, it’s clear that what we have here is the problem-reaction-solution game…

      • Teresa’s solution is to shut down the truther sites

        • exactly.

          Teresa, like Macron & Merkel, is a speaker of the deep state/anglo-american-zionist establishment.

        • ‘truther sites’ .. really .. if you’re looking for truth you wont find it on the internet ..

          The Scripting of the New World Order Narrative

          • “Both the mainstream media and alternative media do not discuss this intentional and planned dismantling of the international order which has built up on the back of the USD.”
            “Logic follows that the alternative media (who pumped the New World Order threat narrative for years) are supporting Trump, and Trump in turn represents the scripting of the international banking interests. The connection flows from one to the other with relative ease but is completely ignored by the large presence and influence of both the mainstream and alternative media. Both serve opposing sides to the dialectic engineering. Within the middle ground between both the dismantling continues. – JC


            a really truth site is the one which does #VoteForNobody.

            • If you want truth .. disconnect the internet and spend more time with your family

            • whether you believe the bible or not the foundation of society is the family and satans plan in the garden was to destroy the family .. if you want to do something concrete .. reach out to your family .. heal the broken hearted .. forgive the unforgivable .. seek out the lost sheep .. restore the family .. otherwise our time is spent brainwashing ourselves .. that’s the truth

            • great hashtag!

          • Amen to that Rev 🙂

  4. They always try to regulate everything but fail; for the Christ is Head of the church and is with us always. He has turned His people to worship Him and not follow after the way of that serpent (Revelation 12:9-10). Whether under persecution, blood spilled, etc., believers will continue to be Christ’s until His return. Some are doubtful, but our faith is strengthened. Our salvation is sealed; for He is with us always:


    Matthew 28:16-20, “16 But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'”

  6. How To Disappear Online

    http://theinternationalforecaster.com/topic/international_forecaster_weekly/the_right_to_be_remembered

    • “As with virtually every other thing in life, we are voting with our actions every single day with every single decision we make. We are watching videos on YouTube instead of a peer-to-peer alternative like BitChute. We are posting to Facebook instead of a blockchain alternative like Steemit. We are searching on Google instead of a privacy protecting search engine like DuckDuckGo or StartPage.

      I’m as guilty as anyone else of falling into bad habits. No one is perfect and we can’t change all of our practices overnight. But unless and until we begin the process of disentangling ourselves from the bought and controlled, Party-approved, Big Tech-dominated web, we are setting ourselves up to be disappeared.

      Forget the “Right to be Forgotten.” How about a “Right to be Remembered?”

  7. they’ve gathered once again…
