UK Prime Minister Theresa May has said she will change human rights laws if they get in the way of tackling suspected terrorists. The PM said she would make it easier to deport foreign terror suspects and restrict the freedom and movements of those that present a threat. Labour said it was not the message that we should be sending.
Prime Minister Theresa May said Britain must be tougher in stamping out Islamist extremism after attackers killed at least seven people by ramming a van into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbing revelers in nearby bars. After the third militant attack in Britain in less than three months, May said Thursday's national election would go ahead. But she proposed regulating cyberspace and said Britain had been far too tolerant of extremism.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has accused the Conservatives of trying to protect the public on the cheap in a speech focusing on the London terror attack. Mr. Corbyn, who has previously questioned the wisdom of a shoot-to-kill policy, also backed the police to use whatever force is necessary to save lives. His comments mark the end of a pause in Labor's campaigning after the attack.
