UK government officials back Trump demands Internet censorship following London bombing
By Paul Mitchell and Robert Stevens 18 September 2017

Moves by the ruling elites, in the US and internationally, to censor and even shut down access to the Internet, are gathering pace following Friday’s detonation of a bomb on a London Underground train.
Within minutes of the bombing at Parsons Green tube station that injured 30 people, US President Donald Trump called for the Internet to be shut off. Within hours, senior government UK officials were repeating his demands in increasingly hysterical terms.
The government of UK Prime Minister Theresa May quickly used the bombing to increase the UK terror threat level from “severe” to the highest level, “critical,” triggering Operation Temperer, the mobilisation of heavily armed soldiers working alongside armed police on the streets of the capital and other major urban areas.
Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, national lead for counter-terrorism policing, declared, “Military personnel have been drafted in to protect national infrastructure sites, allowing additional armed police officers to carry out patrols.” These would “be patrolling at crowded places, iconic sites, transport hubs and ports.”
