    Sinn Fein in the NI Assembly are today calling for social media regulation (via @DonalLyons)
    If they thought they had lost the youth vote before, wait until people hear about this.

    ...and I can't wait to see what Anonymous does to them for even suggesting such draconian, back-wards legislation in regards to the Internet.

    SF voted against lowering rates recently in the NI also

    People need to realise that SF is a deeply authoritarian party, whose quasi fascist nature was always going to result in a high degree of statism once they got into a government

    When social media is used to incite murder and sectarian pogroms, as it has been over the last couple of months, it is a very serious matter.

    Depends on whether government here is for or against it - then the SF(IE) will go with the opposite.

    I'm coming to believe they actually think people down here won't notice what SF(NI) do - or even care.

    Ironic really that SF have become the most partitionist party on the island - to the point that even their policy department is partitioned now.

    Twitter doesn't incite murder and engage in sectarianism the users do.

    Quasi-fascist is calling for the return of the Shankill butchers, or calling on people to 'shoot taigs' or assassinate the Deputy First Minister or 'burn out' the Short Strand - the type of stuff which has been regularly appearing on loyalist 'protest pages' in recent times.

    Of course if anyone tried it the IRA would be back in business and you'd be squealing like a girl.
