UK Election: Theresa May toughens stance on terrorism ahead of key election

Britain already has a long roster of security tools, headed by so-called Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures, or TPims.

Other proposals floated in the British press include electronically tagging or even interning jihadists on watch lists, requiring proof of ID for unregistered SIM cards for mobile phones, and police background checks for people who want to rent a auto immediately. One of those they were most concerned about was Butt.

Suspects can also access the internet while at home, but only if they let authorities have the password they use to log on to a device.

Mrs May, a former interior minister, has previously been criticised for scrapping house arrest rules known as "control orders", which were coming under regular legal challenge.

'And if our human rights laws stop us from doing it, we will change the laws so we can do it.

In her speech to supporters, Mrs May said she would change any laws that prevented the police and security services from dealing effectively with the extremist threat. The laws were replaced the next year.

Two days before the election, Theresa May said she wanted to make it easier to deport foreign terror suspects. This means figures such as Egyptian cleric Abu Hamza, who preached Islamic fundamentalism and militant Islamism, span out their appeals for years rather than face swift removal.

Mr Clegg, also speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme, said: "None of this posturing about human rights is about keeping us safe". "We have tried to make extremism something that is just not worth the risk, but despite all this we are clearly still generating jihadists". May said she will introduce tougher anti-terrorism measures if she wins the general election on Thursday, including restricting the movement of suspects when the authorities do not have enough evidence to prosecute them.

Computex: AMD RX Vega Consumer Launch July 2017, Threadripper Summer 2017
Siggraph runs through August 3rd, so I am not sure we are going to see that as a hard launch, but we can be hopeful. Previously codenamed "Naples", the first EPYC processor-based servers are scheduled to launch June 20.

Dr Sally Leivesley, managing director of Newrisk, a London-based risk consultancy, said a critical issue for the United Kingdom government is to legislate in such a way that behaviour and intention to act against the state fall within the law and can lead to prosecution.

"If our human rights laws get in the way of doing it, we will change the law so we can do it", she added. "We are signed up to the European convention on human rights".

He said her "explosive claim" linking security failures around the London Bridge attack to human rights limitations was "free from any evidence" and that attacking such legislation was nothing more than a "cynical" ploy to attract UKIP voters ahead of polling day.

"For cheap political points and headlines, she is willing to undermine our democracy, our freedom and our rights - the very things these violent murderers seek to attack".

"A lot of people are saying, this is actually the way to go, but it's very hard to do and very under-resourced as well", he said.

"All she would do is reduce freedom, not terrorism".

"The right response to the recent attacks is to halt the Conservative cuts and invest in our police and security services and protect our democratic values, including the Human Rights Act".
