http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6039496.stm In my opinion , based on my experiences here, this has to be the most breathtakingly stupid idea I have ever heard as regards bringing rogue elements to heel. At the most acceptable end, there will be some very smart and expensive cars floating around here imminently. At the least acceptable end, the groups who make the most noise will get the funding , and those groups make the most noise because they are either at the top of the hierarchy of 'village thinking' or have successfully intimidated other groups with something to offer. Some of these groups, will have connections with the exact same entities we are interested in rooting out. What yardstick will be used to measure the effectiveness of this campaign? How can it be measured? All that is going to happen here, is most will print up 5,000 leaflets, send a copy in to the funding centre , collect the cash then do absolutey f**k all. Why should they? If you want to make a difference, and you want results, fund Islamic womens groups. In fact I could swear that was the original proposal talked about, but I imagine if that was the case, the menfolk soon shouted it right out. The only way forward, is NOT to fund the same entities who get funding all the damn time , because they are at the top of the 'village thinking' tree. This idea in it's current proposed form , is a licence to enrich the less than scrupulous , the radical sympathetic and people who want a new BMW.
