Leading Labour Politicians Khan, Rayner, Demand Regulation of ‘Online Hate’

Sep 27, 2022 | Political News

Two leading figures in the UK Labour Party, deputy leader Angela Rayner and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, are pushing the government to speedily pass new regulations on “online hate” — a sign of the party’s priorities if it defeats the ruling conservative party at the next election.

Speaking at an event at the annual Labour Party conference this weekend, the leftist politicians demanded more action from the government, even though British laws already criminalize “hate speech.”

In 2017 alone, the British police arrested nearly 3,400 people for “offensive” online comments, but Labour’s leading figures seem to think that the hate speech laws ought to be even more draconian.
