UK’s Controlling the Online Narrative

The UK Conservative 2017 election manifesto has a section devoted to strategic communication in the online space:

We will continue to push the internet companies to […] help smaller companies build their capabilities and to provide support for civil society organisations to promote alternative and counter-narratives

Post-modern critical theory in a Tory party manifesto!

What are the civil society organisation which will promote narratives? NGOs? PREVENT? George Soros?

Attempts to regulate the internet remind me of the English smashing the printing presses in revolutionary America.
