With acid attacks doubling in the past three years and with 45 incidents
this April alone, Home Secretary Amber Rudd announced the ban at the
Conservative Party Conference in Manchester on October 3rd.:
"Acid attacks are absolutely revolting. You have all seen the pictures of
victims that never fully recover. Endless surgeries. Lives ruined. So today,
I am also announcing a new offence to prevent the sale of acids to under
18s. Furthermore, given its use in the production of so-called ‘mother of
Satan’ homemade explosives, I also announce my intention to drastically
limit the public sale of sulphuric acid. This is how we will help make our
communities safer as crime changes."
Her speech is worth going through, and can be read in entirety here, (

but the establishment of a chilling new “Commission on Countering Extremism”.
"Violent and non-violent extremism in all its forms – Anti-Semitism,
neo-Nazism, Islamophobia, intolerance of women’s rights – these, and others,
cannot be permitted to fester. Our values are far, far better than this. And
we owe it to ourselves to root this hatred out wherever it emerges."
She goes on to urge Facebook, Google, and Twitter develop new technologies
that can monitor and delete harmful content in order to “protect the
public,” and announced plans to set lengthy jail terms (up to 15 years!) to
people merely viewing content online which the government deems offensive:
My advice: get out of the UK, and especially Londonistan, while you still
have possession of your assault butter knife and access to Pepe memes...
