Theresa May was widely expected to fill in the big shoes of Margaret Thatcher. But it appears this Conservative Party leader and second female prime minister of United Kingdom is no difference than German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Not only Theresa May is clueless on where to drive the Britain after Brexit, she’s now equally clueless on what drove the London Bridge terror attack.


Facing the prospect of losing more seats in the coming general election scheduled on 8 June, British Prime Minister Theresa May was forced to put on a brave face, warning that there has been “far too much tolerance of extremism” in the UK and said that “enough is enough”. But that was not enough to cover her empty rhetoric, as she soon revealed herself.

She took the opportunity from the London Bridge and Borough Market attacks to sell her agenda, albeit a foolish one. May called for international regulation of the Internet to combat terrorism, obviously to strengthen her Investigatory Powers Act 2016 – known as “Snooper’s Charter” – which expands the powers of spying agencies and the Government over the Internet.


The Act, championed by Theresa May, requires internet service providers to maintain a list of visited websites for all internet users for a year and gives intelligence agencies more powers to intercept online communications. Essentially, police can access the stored browsing history without any warrant or court order. But what does this act got to do with the slaughter of London Bridge?

Very little, because no amount of snooping or spying could prevent the Saturday’s 10:08pm terror attack that has so far killed 7 people and injured more than 48 people. Although the British authorities have so far refused to release the identities of the three attackers, the writing is on the wall that they’re part of “Radical Islamic Terrorism”.


The Prime Minister said introducing new rules for cyberspace would “deprive the extremists of their safe spaces online” and that technology firms were not currently doing enough. She said – “We cannot allow this ideology the safe space it needs to breed – yet that is precisely what the internet, and the big companies that provide internet-based services provide.”

Asking for regulation of Internet now, after the terror attack, is like asking for regulation of her home’s gate after strangers whom Theresa May had invited with open arms started terrorizing her ten nieces and nephews – raping and killing. Yes, the British prime minister is blaming the gate when the problem was her foolish idea to welcome radicalized Muslims into her home in the first place.


PM Theresa May should have had locked up 3,500 potential terrorists identified by British Intelligence. She should have had detained 400 ISIS-trained fighters returned from war zones in Syria and Iraq in detention centres. She should have had deported people who are not British citizens and who are known to be terrorists. She should have had stopped Muslim refugees or migrants entering Britain.

All the mosques must be monitored and regulated, starting with 423 new mosques in Londonistan which were mostly built on the ruins of English Christianity. Theresa May must understand that British multiculturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism. She must also understand that Muslims are radicalized by their religion, not the Internet. Instead, she’s blaming the Internet.


If Internet and cyberspace were the floodgates of terrorism, why isn’t there any terror attack in UK caused by radicalization of Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism and Judaism? By the way, what had Theresa May done when she was Home Secretary for six years before becoming the prime minister, aside from slashing police force by 20,000?

In case Mrs. May hadn’t realized, the community police were running away at the sight of only 3 radicalized Islamic terrorists during the London Bridge attack. And those attackers were merely armed with knives. Such scenario, which should only happen in comedy films, is indeed embarrassing. Shouldn’t the police be better equipped or trained instead?


Barack Obama had blamed guns, not terrorism, for Orlando massacre. But the attack in London Bridge proves that even without guns, those radicals could still pull a splendid massacre with only knives. Knowing she couldn’t ban knives, or even white van, or whatever weapons that can be found in the kitchen, Theresa May tries to control the Internet.

Once the greatest empire on planet Earth, the Great Britain should be ashamed that they have today been reduced to “run and hide” when faced with knife-armed terrorists. She can scream until foaming at the mouth for backdoor to the Whatsapp application to be allowed, but technologists aren’t impressed with PM Theresa May’s idea to take over the Internet.


Technical guys were laughing at May’s moronic idea simply because she doesn’t understand that there’s no backdoor that only lets good guys go through it. There’s no technical mechanism, let alone legal one, which could be built with rules that say certain users must be treated differently from others. Which user among a bunch of users watching the same YouTube should be flagged as terrorist?

London Bridge and Borough Market Terror Attack - Theresa May Blames Internet, Wants Regulation

So what if Theresa May’s proposal to regulate the Internet could identify potential terrorists? Erica Gasparri, an Italian mother of three who was a neighbour of one of the three jihadists, claimed she had reported him to Barking police two years ago, after the suspect tried to convert her children to Islam and radicalise them at a local park.


Erica said her two children came home and said – “Mummy I want to become a Muslim.” She said the police had told her the information had been passed to Scotland Yard but she had heard nothing more. Only AFTER the suspect and two of his friends slaughtered 7 people in the London Bridge attack did anti-terror police raided his flat on King’s Road in Barking.

The jihadist, a keen football fan who was wearing his Arsenal shirt when he and two others went on the rampage at London Bridge, had also been flagged by his former friend who reported him to the anti-terror police on at least two occasions. The former friend of the terrorist claimed he had been radicalised while watching YouTube videos.


The friend told the BBC’s Asian Network that his former friend – the terrorist – had been radicalised watching videos of the infamous American hate preacher Ahmad Musa Jibril. He said he called the authorities but nothing was done. The friend said – “I did my bit, I know a lot of other people did their bit, but the authorities did not do their bit.”

I totally agree with you on paragraph 8. Unlike Trump, PM May does not have the guts to do just that. That’s why sometimes a brazen “Idiot” like Trump is what is needed in leadership today.
