The prime minister is reportedly shocked by the aftermath of the US presidential election, which saw Twitter post warnings on more than 300,000 tweets. Among them were several President Trump who repeatedly claimed, without providing conclusive evidence, that the election was rigged against him.

As a result, he is considering adding amendments to the Online Damages Bill, which is currently making its way through Parliament.
Speaking to the Mail, a source said the hope is “to reduce the ability of a group of awake California residents to intervene in the UK”.
