{UAH} Theresa May: London terror attack shows Britain too tolerant of extremism.

Frank Mujabi,

Theresa May is beginning to come round to what I have been saying all along: Here she states:

"rooting out terror would require "some difficult and often embarrassing conversations".

I have been asking for this conversation to start for more than 3 years now. In fact if it does not, the right wing fascist nutters will soon be knocking at the door of No 10 Downing Street, not with guns but with millions of ballot boxes given to them by angry and frustrated British people. And the conversations will affect some of the cherished British core values, such as the rule of law, presumption of innocence, trial by jury, citizenship and nationality, police state, and the death penalty. Things can not remain the same; Lets start with the 3,000 suspected muslims on the terror watch list? The government spends £1.5 million watching just one of them round the clock. And even this is not fool-proof, as some have been able to slip through the dragnet and even travel abroad. Why cant they be detained pending trial? And for those where there is insufficient evidence to get a court conviction, there surely must be another law passed by parliament allowing for the indefinite detention of individuals where the Home Secretary, and not the courts, is satisfied will be a threat to the lives of ordinary citizens.. Secondly, the right to deport terrorists with dual nationality to their parents country of originmust be introduced into law, now that the UK is leaving the European Union legal regime. Thirdly, there is a need for cold-hearted ruthlessness on the part of the police, when dealing with muslim terrorists. Being lilly-livered will take us nowhere. These terrorists are hardened killers and you waste time smiling at them. Best to stare at them with real menace.


Theresa May: London terror attack shows Britain too tolerant of extremism

The Prime Minister was speaking after the London Bridge attack that killed seven people

The attack on London Bridge shows there is "far too much tolerance" of Islamist extremism in Britain today, Theresa May has said. 

The Prime Minister made the comments outside Downing Street on Sunday morning in the aftermath of the van and knife attack that saw seven people killed and dozens injured.

Ms May said rooting out terror would require "some difficult and often embarrassing conversations".

The PM warned there was "a new trend in the threat we face" and that while the three recent terror attacks in the UK were not linked by "common networks", they were "bound together by the single evil ideology of Islamic extremism".

She added that things could not "continue as they are" and suggested that "pluralistic British values" should be established as superior and that "safe spaces" for terror planning on the internet should be stamped out through new "international agreements that regulate cyberspace".

The Prime Minister said:  "While we have made significant progress in recent years there is too be frank far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. 

"So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out  across the public sector and across society. 

"That will require some difficult and often embarrassing conversations, but the whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism we need to live our lives not in a series of segregated, separated communities, but as one truly United Kingdom."

Her comments come after the third terror attack on the UK in three months. A car and knife attack on Westminster in March left five people dead, while a bomb attack at a concert in Manchester two weeks ago killed 22.
