‘We don’t live in China!’: Theresa May’s plans to fine technology firms for hosting extreme content are compared to that of ‘a Chinese dictator’ by her OWN counter-terrorism watchdog

The Prime Minister has promised action to punish them in the courts because of the number of cases where terrorists including ISIS-recruits and far-right supporters are radicalised online.
