I see this as a very slippery slope. Good luck defining harmful. In fact, how do they intend to enforce these new rules!

From the article:

"Britain said it would force social media companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Snap to do more to block or remove harmful content on their platforms.

Following a consultation, the UK government said on Wednesday it planned to legislate to ensure companies had systems in place to tackle harmful content such as child abuse, cyber bullying and terrorist propaganda.

The policy, which will be developed in the coming months, would not place an undue burden on business, the government said. Penalties had not yet been decided, but it said the new rules would be enforced in a “fair, proportionate and transparent way”.
