I think it was more of an ideological schism under the pretence of economic prosperity. Not saying BREXIT will, or won't, help the economy. Just saying it was a red herring imo.

Suppressing the internet into something like a Tory politician's worldview isn't an economic policy. It's the imposition of the values of a very select group in British society.

The most frustrating thing is the logic, or absence of logic.
When we voice our concerns to them, they refuse to listen.
When we voice our concerns to each other, they insist on snooping in!!!

The very fact that they would suggest this type of control is indicative of a power mad, paranoid and guilt ridden mindset. They know full well that we are getting angrier at their failed policies and, rather than address the content of the conversation, they want to stifle communication across the board.

Their biggest fear is that their inaction will cause us to organise our own action.

This is the worst idea ever for the average UK citizen and it will be used to shut down the voice of dissent as all totalitarian policies are used for.


One thing that keeps returning to mind is that even if such a strict censorship of the internet were to happen, then there isn't a whole lot to get upset about unless 90% of your life is lived through your computer and smartphones. If it comes to that you could return to the old way of getting things done: on foot, on paper or actually getting together with people in person, no electronic devices. While I see a potential to abuse this new internet, I don't see it as the end of the world. There's plenty of non-internet options.


The times that the authorities have been determined to snoop on residents is when there is opposition to the closure of schools, hospitals and police stations, or the opposition to the construction of railway lines, motorways and massive housing developments.

Before the wall between East and West Germany came down, residents would send and receive data through CD-ROM and floppy disks. Today, we have USB memory sticks, microSD flash cards (that fit inside a mobile phone) going up to 512 Gigabytes (the equivalent of 128 long play VHS video cassettes). There is also instant messaging, so trying to "control internet content" will just push it underground and offline.

I agree with you. It's like an inevitable push towards people having to be accounted for. Where are they? What are they doing? Limit their exposure to information. Dumb down their thinking. Coerce with propaganda.

I'd be fine if this was something history will look back on like the war years. It doesn't seem Zeigeisty, it seems more long-lived and far-reaching than that.

It's the Panopticon a-coming. A bleak future.

I am amazed the internet has stood as it is for so long anyway but having said that there are systems in place on Google,Twitter and Facebook that are already censoring searches and articles becoming viral and serve the establishment to keep people in check.

Old ways of communications are fine but even then remember we live in a surveillance state whereby even the T.V.s are spying upon you so its not far off impossible to not get the attention of the criminal agencies of the deep state if you are a whistle blower or speak out against them.

Britain is gone and is rife for revolution in many many ways ,the Peado establishment are just prolonging the inevitable.

If you don't want to read something online then don't go online.

Free speech on the internet should not be restricted. This is a terrible idea.


Both agree and disagree with this statement. Yes free speech should be protected on the internet but at the same time we have to recognise that people get away with, for example, all sorts of libellous statements because it is said online. The sort of things that ruin lives, ruin businesses, etc. So if the focus is on sharpening up that side of the internet then i am all for it.

That's true but they should go after the individuals responsible.
You wouldn't like to get fined for someone else speeding would you.
Its the generalised nature of it that I detest.

One bad apple and all that.

More spying from the government and now they want to control what is and isn't published on the internet.
Why am I not surprised? Someone call the thought police, I just read something I didn't like!

I sense Alot of people will be dressing up as Citizen V if this happens.



Not in the UK, they have been whipped by their government since 1066.


Woudnt be the first time they had a slave revolt.

They haven't outlined how internet datum would get censored and regulated yet. I would guess that part of it would be automated with censor bots. That really does seem like a difficult task to monitor the whole internet.

Add an element of free-radicals intentionally trying to use internet mediums to cause that sort of damage as there is in America you get regulations like we have here like "net neutrality" as an added defense against internet trolls. And not all internet trolls are slacker hackers either, some are music business undersiders and obscure but connected tech power players under corporate umbrellas. Truth is that many people aren't out to stir up trouble and most people use the internet for mundane things like read the news and talk to family.

Yeah, unfortunately. Not a big fan of Gibson. Mad Max was good when it first came out.
Blue face wouldn't suit me and my back is so screwed I'd hurt myself if I yelled too loud, let alone charging into battle!

As Kandinsky said above, the timing seems off. They've had tons of opportunity to do something about all the pedo stuff and terrorism.
We all know it never ends there and the potential for overreach and incompetence is obvious.

The way I see it is they are too confident in their power and think that selling out the other 99% isn't going to be a problem, but obviously, demographics speak the loudest. Look at London, it isn't even English anymore. How far do you think they'll let it go? It's gonna look like France or Deutshland before you know it... and nobody wants that development!

I really don't know.
Its funny you mention those two places because I've recently been watching some you tube vids from people in Sweden complaining about their current situation and one or two from Germany.
There doesn't seem to be many from France but that might just be the way the recommendations work on YT.
Of course, there's the "official" line that everything is hunkey dorey and the migrants are all lovely people and those awful racists on YT are nasty liars.
The more they push this line of thinking, the more dishonest they look.
People aren't stupid and they can see what's really going on so the official line is going to end up back firing and make people more angry with their leaders.

The other side of this is that its obvious that the EU will try to sabotage the Brexit process and cause as much trouble for the UK as they can. I can see us being flooded with fake news designed to wind us up and create disunity. There's already enough trouble between the yays and nays as it is.

I've also been watching some vids from people in the UK who've had benefits cut and the ways that they've used to have them re-instated. The DWP have been quite sneaky, underhand and, on occasion, downright criminal in their methods to get benefits slashed and they don't want this exposed. Quite a few of the you tubers have said their vids have been taken down but they've uploaded them again.

Same thing for people who've found ways to get away with not having a TV license or non payment of council tax. The hired thugs come round making threats and intimidating people but they know their rights and stand their ground to make them go away empty handed.
I can see Theresa May wanting to put a stop to that because she doesn't want people to know they have rights.

As for London, I can't really comment as I haven't been down there for a long time and I don't like cities in general.

Its a trick to shut down the voice of the dissident exposing the hypocrisy and outright criminality under the guise of fighting terrorism by the peado Government co opted compromised bunch of cuckolds.

Sweden and the United Kingdom have been the least accomodating to refugees while Deutschland and France have often done more for them than they do for their own people.




The other side of this is that its obvious that the EU will try to sabotage the Brexit process and cause as much trouble for the UK as they can.


The UK has been like an economical backbone for the EU ever since the union formed. With England wanting to to regain financial independence when Brexit takes effect and borders regain a strict value then Deutschland will become the sole economical backbone of the EU.




I've also been watching some vids from people in the UK who've had benefits cut and the ways that they've used to have them re-instated. The DWP have been quite sneaky, underhand and, on occasion, downright criminal in their methods to get benefits slashed


England has never been a welfare state and being a part of the EU for 17 years has opened many Brits eyes to the results of such socialist policies. The UK has always been primarily red blooded through all of it's history. Social security is frowned upon. There's a whole world out there, take it!


I can see Theresa May wanting to put a stop to that because she doesn't want people to know they have rights. ,


I don't know much about the tug-of-war between Parliament and the throne. I hear all sorts of different opinions. It is all a power game and in the long run both sides have their merits.

You know, I'm using this crappy "smartphone" (stupidphone), and it is difficult enough to type on this damn thing then you come along and reply to this thread at the same time that I was typing my last post up and somehow you did a bump before I was done typing and my post disappeared! I had to retype the damn thing.

My dumbphone does that a lot, too. Annoying.

Errrmm yeah, I'm sure lots of sick and disabled people would love to "take" the big wide world but they can't if the govt starves them to death.
I'm all in favour of them sharing information to overcome the obstacles put in their place.
No one likes a scrounger but too many babies get thrown out with the bathwater due to poor policy.

As for Europe. I'm glad we can see You Tubers telling us what's going on because we sure don't get the truth from the TV these days.

Anyway, at this point, I'd like to see exactly what the new policy entails before passing further judgement.
I'm very likely to let my personal feelings get the better of me because I don't approve of censorship, particularly from a Tory government.

Its possible that, like Don't Quixote, we are merely tilting at windmills.
