Published

Support TLDR on Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/tldrnews

An idea is currently floating through Parliament known as David’s Law, a proposal which if successful could end anonymity online. So in this video we explain what the law would do, why politicians have an appetite for this kind of thing at the moment & what the internet would look like in a post ‘David’s Law’ world.

    There’s a simple solution to this. Get off social media and use the internet without anyone spying on you.

    having bad situation lead to taking away people's rights is nasty slippery slope.
    i stand by online anonymity in spite of the risks to protect my own right to not be known.

    I suffer from severe enough social phobia that i have a diagnosis from actual doctor, infact few of them and use that anonymity to have socialization option that grants me way to stay detached from the identity here. It is sort of respite for me to not have to deal with world of problems that comes from in person interactions.

    A much better option would be to enforce existing laws against harassment and death threats: require social media companies to immediately remove death threats, ban the account, and file a police report.

    end the anonymity

    Always makes me laugh when they come up with crap like this, I remember a few years back under Cameron they where talking about "porn passports" while screaming "Wont somebody think of the children" all it does is show me that these idiots have zero fundamental understanding of how the internet works, you would need 100% cooperation form every country in the world, every tech company, every ISP, every owner of a platform with a comments section and require the shutdown of all VPNs and other tools like Tor. Apple still refuse to build a backdoor into their devices for law enforcement so good luck with that. Its the type of pure British arrogance that only comes out of the Tory party to think this little island who's relevance in world affairs falls year, after year can somehow control the internet.

    Great, as a victim of Sexual Assault, a stalker, and someone estranged from my abusive father, I definitely want this /sarcasm

    Like, this is throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

    Googling my legal name comes up with my great grandparent's obituaries and my dance results from when I was a competitive dancer, I know that using my legal name online will make it easy to find me. When I left my ex assaulted me, I moved cities so that he couldn't find me. The idea that I couldn't use any social media site without him being able to find it is terrifying.

    Also, like, when it comes to displaying a name, there's a lot of variation on how anonymous that can be. My father's name is so common that there's an entire wikipedia disambiguation page for people you might be looking for. Getting a tweet from a verified John Smith isn't really going to tell you who that is without going into the backend and finding the ID. And the thing is, we already have ways of finding out who is behind an anonymous post if legally required. Like contacting the service providers is already a thing. The reality is, it doesn't matter if the hate is anonymous or not, nothing is being done about it.

    How about. Mad idea. Dont fucking use social media. At the very least, dont just add random people you dont know, keep it to actual firends and family. It baffles me how anyone can think it is anyoens fault but their own. SURPRISE, add a random person and you might get death threats from a random basement dweller just looking to have some fun with you. How stupid do you have to be.
    I bet these are the same people that click on email links they recieve for hot girls in their area.

  8. @deelaw.

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    I wouldn't want my passport information on twitter's or Facebook's servers.

  9. @charanth182

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Could you please elaborate what the deaths of these MP's had to do with the internet? I agree people shouldn't be posting death threats, but you never stated that these MP's were subject to those that went through with it.

  10. @StevenStarksjbirdcapitalllc

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    VPN can protect anonymity. It has gotten out of control with the attacks. It will also only stop the foolish ones, the people who are sophisticated will still be able to post using a fake ID…

  11. @jocke6517

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    I though that britania left EU to get more freedom but its seems like you slipning in to a diktatorchip

  12. @scruff921

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    would verify for things like steam , RS ect but never yt or insta

    That Single Etonite twat is an accurate representation for what will be the legacy of England for the following 10 years. He didnt start all of it, but he is actively making everything worse.

    LMAO

  14. @PbThunder

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    If steps are taken to remove online anonymity demand for VPNs will increase and forgery would increase. It would be so harmful and damaging.

    Oh.. they're casting the fishing rod..

  16. @Alwarin1

    Facebook is not getting my ID. Period.

  17. @corin164

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Where there is a will, there will always be a way, so the adage goes. There are just too many ways an average user can skirt any law requiring ID's. I think the Tories know that and why they are hesitant to act. This is just another example of why too many people prefer safety, over freedom. The problem they should consider before pushing the ID issue is that without freedom, they will be less safe from the government intrusion in their lives.

  18. @PASTRAMIKick

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    The creepy intro may be for Halloween, but it should be for this type of policy

  19. @jacobpayne5247

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    The verification idea sounds perfect

  20. @hasenhirn1965

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    what a suprise.
    it doesnt matter if a woman is raped and murdered,
    but as soon as a parasitic beeing from the parlament is involved
    it is clear that the freedom off the underlings must be limited.

  21. @angelic8632002

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    And completely ignoring the root cause of all of it. If anonymity is enabling people to act out in despicable ways, the answer is not to take away that anonymity, but reflect on how your culture enables this behaviour to begin with. These individuals would still be around and still act out in anti social ways if enabled and we need to face it.

  22. @KuraSourTakanHour

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    I agree about requiring a verified ID for social accounts by authenticating without disclosing identity. But, fundamentally, people have the right to explore the internet anonymously

  23. @chr15ru55e11

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Nope.

  24. @fat-freeoliveoil6553

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    I was initially against this but actually… I do think it makes sense that you should require some form of identification for social media accounts. However, I do believe it should be the account holder's choice to publically display this info to other users. I think it makes sense for the social media company and government to know who exactly the account belongs to as this would help prevent people posting harmful shit online just because no one knows who they are. It can also drastically reduce the number of bot/spam accounts.

    Personally, I am not against my government knowing my social media interactions if it means it can make the internet a safer place (they're already somewhat public anyways).

    My search history on the other hand. No no no.

  25. @fat-freeoliveoil6553

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Bruh. They couldn't even get the porn ban through. What makes them think they can get this through?

  26. @tetst_54546

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Hmmm, based on petition then? Very interesting that UK government didn't grant people another Brexit referendum after petition being signed by 6,000,000 people.

  27. @richterman3962

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Can please ask why? What's the point of yhis

  28. @Lachrymogenic

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    I would rather not have to clarify my identity online and if that comes about, I might aswell get off google forever.

  29. @thomaswohl7375

    ironically david amess tweeted his location just before the surgery took place

  30. @kris.yochev

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    This proposal has a 1984 vibe to it

  31. @benyaminewanganyahu

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    It's about the victims not the 'abusers'. Filtering messages, like the tiered strategy suggests, is the best approach.

    People still think and write these things whether you read it or not. This is a function of being famous and access – nothing to do with anonymity.

  32. @nononom253

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Uk just wants to make another mistake like Brexit xd

  33. @StabbedPerson

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    OR what if we made it illegal to NOT be anonymous online?

  34. @johnboltz2768

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    in the end Big Tech are American companies so not sure eat they can really do. they can do this to people in the UK but if they do this to an American they will find themselves in American courts.

  35. @blakeobrien93

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    my problem with this is where do you allow for constructive critisism and the right to free speech vs blatant abuse and bullying.

  36. @adam13magic63

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Sounds like the west is becoming less democratic, free, and more authoritarian.

  37. @herrhornbuckele5227

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    If anything like this goes through it will be a dark day for democracy. Ending anonymity online is pure populism.

  38. @jonathanfaber3291

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    MPs: end online anonymity
    Literally anyone with more than an ounce of brain cell when it comes to tech: we’d rather commit treason tbh

  39. @SFVYachtClub

    January 5, 2024 at 7:05 pm

    Why are the Bri'ish harrumphing like they even have a say in any of this? Englishers do not have the tools or ability to threaten the state, which means they are literally nothing more than a resource to be managed and harvested. Barely even people at this point.

    Probably as good of an idea as Brexit

Do Independent MPs Need to be Elected Again? – TLDR Explains

Published

on



The Independent Group Explained – https://youtu.be/R3VXLo9NZiI

It is worth looking at whether The Independent Group MPs are required to call a by-election. Some (most notably those in the leadership of the Labour Party) claim that, due to the MPs switching parties, by-elections should be called in their constituencies. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean they legally or morally have to.

But nearly five years later, regional inequality seems to have gotten worse, so, in this video, we’re going to take a look at why it’s gotten worse and whether it can change.
