Theresa May to shut down the internet as we know it
“Theresa May is planning to introduce huge regulations on the way the internet works, allowing the government to decide what is said online.
Particular focus has been drawn to the end of the manifesto, which makes clear that the Tories want to introduce huge changes to the way the internet works.
"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 have confirmed that the phrasing indicates that the government intends to introduce huge restrictions on what people can post, share and publish online.“
This is genuinely fucking nightmarish.
I hate to use the term ‘Orwellian’ but if the totalitarian urge to control discourse fits…
