Teresa May Says Internet Must Now Be Regulated, Following Violent Muslim Attacks

The British PM called the internet a safe space for ideas to breed, and, she said, we cannot allow that:

“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."

Therefore, and in the wake of the recent violent Muslim attacks in the UK, democratic governments should work together to "reduce the risks of extremism" by making new international agreements to regulate the internet, May said.

However, during the same speech, she noted that the three recent attacks were not linked by "common networks" but were “bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamic extremism."
