UK Government Targets Internet ‘Trolls’ With Specialist Police Unit

The government is spending hundreds of thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ cash on the first-ever national police unit dedicated to tackling internet ‘trolls’.

The Home Office has dedicated £200,000 towards setting up the ‘hub’ in the hope it will see more web users tracked down and prosecuted for causing offence on social media.

A small team of officers will be dedicated to assessing reports of perceived abuse made to the police’s True Vision ‘hate crime’ reporting platform, which was used by pro-EU campaigners to claim Brexit had caused a wave of ‘hate crimes’.

    Wasn’t there a whole South Park season about this? I guess the UK government now treats parody as policy.

  • These idiots are making a big mistake by focusing on the internet, and it’s turning them into lazy cops — sitting at a keyboard all day analyzing “politically-incorrect” speech produced by 13 year old Joey living in mom’s basement, does not catch criminals. Computer data does not blow people up and send innocents to their graves — militant ideologues with guns and bombs do.

      That is no longer there enemy. Anyone who says the emperor has no clothes is. England has Control issues and simply can it abide with losing it. But the Truth obeys no Man.

      That 13 year old will have to learn how to use a TOR network enabled browser. There is a way around this madness and it is to force them to spend crazy amounts of money to track down that one kid on twitter – that is how the yanks broke the back of the soviet union (or part of it)…

      • I lost you on that last sentence. Okay, I think I got it — wow good point. We often forget the economic costs of “fighting terrorism” — could it break the back of the U.S.? Possibly, especially if lots of money is spent on pettiness. And the telecommunications revolution of the 80’s and ’90’s certainly played a part in opening up the Eastern Bloc. Murphy, it would be a sad legacy if the technology were employed today in the West to suppress freedom rather than bolster it, or if it were to become economically unsustainable or a liability.

          Indeed it does look like tech is being used to further marxism and suppress any blowback that is occurring.

    I think it’s time someone target the police force and pie them in the face so they know how it’s feels.

    How the hell did these pansies ever hold an empire? It anger me to no end.

    • The best of Europe emigrated to North America.

        And yet we still have a mutated version of the leftists/Marxist disease.

        The time for the scalpel is drawing to a close. Bring forth the torch.

    True Vision? Why don’t they just come right out and call it the Ministry Of Truth?

      Exactly!
