    Default Theresa May to create new internet that would be controlled and regulated by governme

    Theresa May to create new internet that would be controlled and regulated by government
    "Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet," it states. "We disagree."

    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.
    The manifesto makes reference to those increased powers, saying that the government will work even harder to ensure there is no "safe space for terrorists to be able to communicate online".
    lol

    The new rules would include laws that make it harder than ever to access pornographic and other websites. The government will be able to place restrictions on seeing adult content and any exceptions would have to be justified to ministers, the manifesto suggests.

    Can't wait to have to report in on my daily activity to chairman Mao.
    Also wtf at Buzzfeed

    An arguable positive to this though is:
    The laws would also force technology companies to delete anything that a person posted when they were under 18.

    The sad truth is that given mass immigration from Islamic countries, this sort of thing is going to become more common as security services have more and more muslims to track and monitor for terror and/or extremist activities.

    It's the reason why we now have Police Forces who scarily resemble the military and the reason why historic English liberties have been thrown away such no detention without trial. But hey, at least we're more diverse. Whatever the benefit of being diverse is.

    The worst thing about this is that it went to Buzzfeed first I mean what's next Lib Dems publishing a manifesto titled "16 Things You'll Never Believe We Want To Do To The Country!"

    Is half of it even possible though? It reads a lot like someone high up assuming that all they have to do is change the settings in Internet Explorer 6 in order to own the internet

    Just skip out the KKK or those Irish people that are Christians. No, of course terrorists are Muslims - all white people are perfect. They're white!

    We've had mass surveillance for years that has prevented jack shit. Pretty sure those behind the Paris attacks some years back used SMS, not some "deep web" site.
    Also, what's me going on habporn.org got anything to do with the government or preventing terrorism? Why should I only be allowed to see things which someone else deems appropriate? This is just authoritarian for the sake of being authoritarian and I can't believe you seem to be advocating this.

    From what I have read, yes it is possible but by no means easy. I also doubt TM has any idea how anything tech related works.

    It all seems really ridiculous and I imagine it wouldn't be easy to put into place, if it ever is. People will find away around it, if someone is determined enough to commit to a terrorist attack then they'll find ways to do it without communicating over the internet. I don't see why people sharing details online or watching porn is even linked to that, I ddon't see why me going and watching busty babes 5 is anyone's business other than my own, or why it should be blocked or how it's even going to help them prevent terrorism.

    who knew you’d be hated for being who you are
    & be a big target for all the insecure.
