Britain, France Announce Joint Campaign Against Online Radicalization

British Prime Minister Theresa May described the plan as a counterterrorism initiative at a news conference in Paris with French President Emmanuel Macron.

The leaders also discussed issues of security - Mrs May said they spoke about how to "tackle terrorism and root out the extremism that fuels it" because both France and the United Kingdom have suffered recent attacks.

Mr Macron said: "Of course the door remains open, always open, until the negotiations come to an end".

The match kicked off around five minutes later than the scheduled 9pm (1900 GMT) start, after French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May had arrived at the stadium in the nick of time.

On whether the terms of Brexit would now change, the Prime Minister said, "I think there is a unity of goal among people in the United Kingdom, having voted to leave the European Union, that their Government gets on with that and makes a success of it, and we are committed to developing a deep and special partnership with the European Union".

"Once it (the Brexit process) has started we need to be collectively clear that it's more hard to reverse course", he said at the Élysée palace.

Macron's comments that it was not too late for Britain to remain inside the European Union came as May faces a tug-of-war within her own party over her Brexit strategy following a disastrous snap election which she called.Before the election May had proposed a clean break from the European Union, involving a withdrawal from Europe's single market, but now weakened with a minority government, some in her party are calling for a more business-friendly approach.

"The British government has said we will stay with the Brexit".

The measures aim "to ensure the Internet can not be used as a safe space for criminals and terrorists and it can not be used to host the radicalising material that leads to so much harm", May said.

"Crucially, our campaign will also include exploring creating a legal liability for tech companies if they fail to take the necessary action to remove unacceptable content".

The President - asked if he believed that is what Mrs May intended as the leader of a minority Government - said it was for her to comment on the UK's intentions. "But if they wanted to change their decision, of course, they would find open doors".

May said that she intends to work with Macron and the social media and technology companies to automatically remove content deemed by London and Paris as "extremist".
