May calls on internet firms to remove extremist content within two hours

Theresa May is to urge internet companies to take down extremist content being shared by terrorist groups within two hours, during a summit with the French president and the Italian prime minister.

May is meeting senior executives from Google, Facebook and Microsoft on the sidelines of the UN in New York on Wednesday alongside her French and Italian counterparts, Emmanuel Macron and Paul Gentiloni.

The meeting comes amid growing concerns that groups such as Islamic State are able to produce and distribute videos and online magazines too readily.

    Ah Theresa, so nice to see you showing your true colours once again you censorious, vicious, drunken, little totalitarian. Is it still too late to deport her back to the US?

      Ooops, wrong May. I was thinking about Lardette Lizzy. What is it about the name May that drives them to becoming onerous pariah’s of freedom?

      I’m sure she would be as surprised as anyone at her deportation to the U.S.!
      Can we just dump her in the middle of a Nebraska wheat field with a black bag over her head? When she gets her hood off, and she’s standing all alone in the middle of a wheat field, in the perfect geographical center of America, she can figure out a way to get back home.

    Will you guys permit me this one time to call her a cunt?

    This will only be used against conservatives.

      Okay, just this one time, then it’s off to bed for you. You have school tomorrow!

  • Google and Facebook “take down extremist content being shared by terrorist groups”?

    Naturally there will be some exceptions, Islam for instance; this is the UN after all. Anyone espousing conservative views, such as Anglican Mothers Union Sewing Circles, will, of course, be stamped on harshly with the full force of the Law.
