Boycott 'bully' says PM David Cameron

He said social networking sites should have tighter controls to help stop online bullying.
Mr Cameron said: "It's not the case that there's nothing we can do just because it's online.
"First of all, the people that run these websites have got to step up to the plate, clean up their act and show some responsibility."
He added: "Just because something is done online doesn't mean that it's legal.
"If you incite hatred, if you incite violence, that's a crime whether you do it in a television studio, on a soapbox or online and so these people can be chased.
"If websites don't clean up their act and don't sort themselves out then we as members of the general public have got to stop using these particular sites and boycott [stop using] them."
