Cameron getting tough on radicalisation

0


DAVID CAMERON is to set out a string of new powers to tackle radicalisation, saying the UK has been a “passively tolerant society” for too long.
The prime minister intends to tell the National Security Council that a counter-extremism bill will be in the Queen’s Speech on May 27.
The proposals were first set out by Home Secretary Theresa May before the general election, and now seem to be pushed forward as the PM said his party will “confront head-on the poisonous Islamist extremist ideology.”
There is likely to be some opposition in the new Parliament on the grounds that some of the plans could infringe people’s right to free speech, BBC home affairs correspondent Danny Shaw said.
Cameron added: “This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach. As the party of one nation, we will govern as one nation, and bring our country together. That means actively promoting certain values. Freedom of speech. Freedom of worship. Democracy. The rule of law. Equal rights regardless of race, gender or sexuality.”
