CITY VIEWS: SHOULD BBM BE SHUT DOWN?

CHE SIDANIUS | BANK OF ENGLAND
“I don't think that shutting them down is the right solution. It would not prevent kids doing silly things. In a democracy it would be bad precedent and breach freedom of speech.”

CHRIS SEVENOAKS | EMERALD
“It would be an infringement on everyone’s civil liberties to shut the social media sites down. To be honest I don't think censorship would the solve problem anyway.”

LIAM TUCKER | CHAUCER
“No, only a small percentage are using it to publicise the rioting, so therefore shutting it down would not have a very big impact on what is really going on.”
