New Tory manifesto requests sweeping powers to seize control of the internet
UK Prime Minister Theresa May wants sweeping new powers for her government to seize indiscriminate control of the internet.
Towards the bottom of the Tory manifesto published on Thursday, there is a technology section that clearly states the party's intent to control the online world through new regulations.
Some people say that it is not for government to regulate when it comes to technology and the internet," the manifesto states.
Senior Tories confirmed to BuzzFeed that the phrase actually means implementing new legislation that would allow the government to have control over any material posted, shared, and published online.
