MP calls for an end to online anonymity

Labour MP Jess Phillips, who received 600 rape threats in one night from internet trolls, has called for an end to online anonymity and said she did not see why Twitter and Facebook could not be sued when people use them to spread lies. While she said the threats she received were “water off a duck’s back”, she said the abuse MPs receive “affects our democracy” as it “changes how Members of Parliament react”.
