Default Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following London Bridge terror at - 06-04-2017, 16:38 | posts: 123

Quote:
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.
Thats rich coming from a Govt that wont increase police numbers.

Quote:
"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.
Quote:
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.
Porn = Terrorism now?

She's been pushing this for about 5 years or so, even as home secretary. Snoopers charter was all her doing and it's fuc king invasive 1984 levels of scary

I can only hope she gets voted out of power next week. At the very least a hung parliament so she can't push through even more invasive stuff

US Pres says some stupid things and even used this attack to promote a muslim ban, but blaming porn for terrorism is a new low. Its almost as hilarious as blaming GTA and Doom for the Columbine massacre or blaming camping for the mass killings in Norway in 2011.

This is where the conspiracies start that the gov't plan these attacks in order to have reason to push these retarded laws and justify even more spying on it's citizens

Someone drove a van into people, so we're gonna block pr0n from all your interwebz to make everyone safer ....

Yeah like...lets take a moment here and think about what she has said:

Sexual intercourse is responsible for terrorism.

This is far more deluded than anything to have come out of Trump's mouth.


Other outlets are now reporting on it while intentionally omitting the pornography part.

Hahaha .. wow. I would contend it is the other round but this is interesting lol.

She isn't letting a good crisis go to waste. Conservatives party doesn't have anyone else?

She should take a closer look at the prison system to do something about terrorism.

She does not realize that there are thousands of communication channels anyone can use without being monitored.

Imagine 2 people playing private CS:GO game. Just 2 of them. And they stay next to each other and shoot to the wall, making signs. And this is extreme.

Pick any android game with lobby or friend list and chat there. It is not stored or analyzed. Undetectable communication right in your cellphone.

Or take VNC like desktop sharing. One person hosts meeting others follow...

If I wanted totally private solution, I'll use Softether VPN, encode traffic and compile customized (by me) version of Apache OpenMeetings.

Typical retarded response from the political class! So to stop future terrorist attacks perpetrated by Muslim Extremists, let us take more and more of your rights and freedoms. Stupid! Kind of like the Patriot Act in the U.S. Every time there's a crisis or an attack the go-to response is less rights for citizens. The false flag conspiracies may be difficult to prove but some of them do make sense when you see how the political elite respond to these events.

Yup.

UK Prisons are a breeding ground for extremism, they need to be investigated and police spending needs to be increased.

Trying to stop joe public from watching porn online isn't going to do jack.

The wording of this is deliberately vague, 'extremism' ?

Extreme what exactly ? Sports ?

Laws are not ruled on by what they mean, or were originally intended to outlaw. The rulings are made on the wording. Counter-extremism could be interpreted to apply to many things the government does not approve of.
Also, what is extreme ? One person's extreme may be another's slightly eccentric.

As a previous poster said, this law has nothing to do with the latest incidents, or even terrorism in general. It's about power and control.

I cannot vote for any party that is going to do this. Sadly it seems that they are going to win and this will be one of the 1st things they do because 'it was in our manifesto'

We already live in dark times, they are about to become much even darker.

The UK doesn't have any good options at the moment, I'm not even going to vote. I dislike the Conservatives, but I dislike current Labour just as much if not more. As for parties like the Lib-Dems, they should probably change their parties name as it most definitely doesn't fit their current ideals. Even if the likes of the Green Party stood a snowballs chance in hell, a number of their major members have promoted crap like homeopathy. There's literally nobody worth voting for.

There's a massive lack of proper representation in UK politics at the moment, outside of the die hard party supporters who believe their chosen groups can do no wrong, the public is essentially being told to pick its poison.

Pick the one you dislike the least and vote for them. Every vote matters.

If a kid in school would paint dick in exam paper - he would be punished.
If Theresa proposes bs - she should be punished. Why laws are either accepted or dismissed. Should be some warnings for bs law proposers. Why isnt the case?

Restricting access to porn, won't decrease violence. Quite the opposite. Sex releases endorphins.... Endorphins reduce stress and violent urges. So, take away something that assists in the release of endorphins and watch violence increase....

On a more serious note, if Gov'ts would stop trying to use such events as justification for taking away rights and freedoms, people would stop thinking that they're Gov't organized specifically for that reason. I mean, think about it. Such a sickening event happens and what's the first response from Gov't? Take away rights and freedoms. If these events weren't orchestrated by the Gov'ts, that wouldn't be the first response. The first natural response would be "How do we stop this from happening again?" Keep in mind, criminals don't follow laws to start with... That's what makes them criminals.... Taking away rights and freedoms only creates more criminals..... More criminals = more Gov't control = more criminals = more Gov't control = more criminals.... Anyone else see the cycle here?

This isn't a political thread. You can't discuss Gov't without politics, but that doesn't make a thread political in nature.
