!It will be an offence to view terrorist material online just once and could incur a prison sentence of up to 15 years under new UK laws.

The Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill was granted Royal Assent yesterday, updating a previous Act and bringing new powers to law enforcement to tackle terrorism.

But a controversial inclusion was to update the offence of obtaining information "likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism" so that it now covers viewing or streaming content online.

The rules as passed into law are also a tightening of proposals that had already been criticised by human rights groups and the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, Max Hill.

Originally, the proposal had been to make it an offence for someone to view material three or more times but the three strikes idea has been dropped from the final Act."

2) declare discrimination morally repugnant
3) use real and imagined threat of terrorism to impose increasingly draconian laws 'for your own safety'
