Theresa May Wants To Regulate The Internet

The Conservative manifesto sets out a distinct vision for the future of the internet in which an anarchic world run by private companies is supplemented by substantial government intervention.

"Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet," it states. "We disagree."

When the manifesto was unveiled by Theresa May in Halifax on Thursday morning, news bulletins understandably focused on the party's taxation policy and Brexit plans rather than the technology section at the end.

Senior Tories confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the phrasing indicates that the government intends to introduce huge restrictions on what people can post, share and publish online.

The plans will allow Britain to become "the global leader in the regulation of the use of personal data and the internet", the manifesto claims.

Yes, as a voter I of course read the manifesto (88 pages) and the end of the document where the internet is mentioned is more toned towards trying to accommodate cyber bullying. They are social media policies, not internet throttling policies.

If my ISP tries to manage my traffic, they would be in breach of contract and I would sue them - a lot.

How would they be in breach of contract? I doubt it states in your terms and conditions that the ISP is not allowed to implement any network management that might slow your access.

Other than things that are out of their control, they must give me the service I have paid for - if they break that agreement deliberately; they are in breach.
