PM breaks no-campaigning pact with shameful stunt

THERESA MAY violated an agreement yesterday to suspend election campaigning, made out of respect for those killed and injured in Saturday’s London Bridge attacks, with a heavily politicised speech on terrorism.
All parties except Ukip had promised to pause campaigning until last night after seven people died from the attack and 21 people had been put in intensive care out of 48 people injured in total.
On Saturday night at about 10pm the driver of a hired van steered onto the pavements of London Bridge and hit pedestrians before three men with long knives got out of the vehicle and started stabbing people.
The three were shot dead by police within eight minutes of the first 999 call. They were found to be wearing fake suicide vests.
Ms May accused big internet companies and apps such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp of giving terrorist ideology “the safe space it needs to breed” through encrypted and anonymous messaging services.
She echoed the Tory manifesto pledge to have stricter regulation of the internet to clamp down on terrorism — an idea dismissed by experts as “politically convenient” and “lazy.”
Speaking outside Downing Street, Ms May called for international agreements to curb freedom of internet use and claimed they would “prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning.”
But International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) director Peter Neumann used a series of posts on Twitter to criticise Ms May’s speech.
“Few people radicalised exclusively online. Blaming social media platforms is politically convenient but intellectually lazy.
