74% of the public want the big internet companies to do more to locate and delete extremist content and 65% believe that they are not doing enough to combat radicalisation, Policy Exchange finds in its new report The New Netwar: Countering Online Extremism published today (Tuesday). Exclusive new analysis of jihadist activity online, published ahead of the Prime Minister co-chairing a meeting with web giants, shows that we are not winning this war and that Isis’s online output has not fallen – even while they have been losing territory on the ground.
In a new report published today, Foreign Policy in the New Parliament, Policy Exchange stresses the vital role of Parliament in debates about Britain’s place in the world. Against the backdrop of a hung parliament, and with Brexit-related legislation likely to be divisive in the House of Commons, the government will very much hope to avoid a major House of Commons vote on a controversial foreign policy issue. A new database of MPs’ voting records, as well as their constituency positions on Brexit, also demonstrates the dangers of internal division facing both main parties.
Policy Exchange paper says judges now threaten the fighting capacity of Britain’s armed forces – not least because enemy combatants have been granted the right to sue the Government for breaching their human rights.
