Senior U.K. lawmaker says world’s legislators will need to get tough with Facebook after Australia move

Julian Knight, the chair of British parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee, said on Thursday that the move by Facebook to block all media content in Australia was a “bully boy action” and that it would only stiffen the resolve of legislators across the world to get tough with tech giants. He also warned that if Facebook continues moves like this, it’ll face the “same long-term ire as the likes of big oil and tobacco.”
