The government has unveiled plans to ban anyone who criticises it from appearing on TV or protesting.
Under the guise of protecting the public from ‘extremism’ the government proposal will allow police to vet the social media activity of “harmful” individuals and curb their right to speak at public events.
The maximum sentence could be up to 10 years in prison for breaking a banning order.
These new plans would also promise greater powers for British police to access internet data.
Targeted individuals will also be barred from certain public spaces and from associating with named people. The plans were unveiled by Theresa May at the Conservative Party Conference and reiterated by David Cameron, in his speech on ‘extremism’.
