How is that any different from all these dictatorships blocking social network access? It's ok for us to be on our high horses and say it is wrong then, but now it is ok?
They should definitely do, because it is chaos in some of the major cities in the UK now. If they can't get organised, they can't start rioting, so block twitter or whatever.
Is it keeping the peace or is it disabling an enemy armies communications?
Maybe they shouldn't be allowed to block it, but they should at least be able to track things with criminal intent, it's easy to track on twitter with hash tags, but not really that easy on other networks.
& they can block the phone & radio waves while their at it!eh?? The governments have it coming,all of them! The second they loss control they use it to target their number 1 problems at the time,which just happens to be the internet at this given moment.
that make me remember someone did this before , he even sent his army to kill people. dictatorship is a universal problem not a country or two.
LOL ... does the UK get its politics from the middle-east . what a disgrace .
Didn't Egypt literally do this exact same thing?!?!
I have absolutely no respect for any of the British youth, sorry to say
