It's all starting to feel like a huge U-turn, and I actually like it!

I was never happy with the thought laws that where being passed placed my beliefs and opinions with the minority and made me feel slightly uncomfortable with sharing them and those of others.

Perhaps the tides of change are turning in the correct direction after all...

What a pity the cost of bring our Government into line has been so high and the recent events so traumatic!

From AOL News (soz to any non-AOL subscribers)....

Now he will set out the finalised list. It will apply to extremists using any means including writing, preaching, running a website or using a position of responsibility such as a teacher, community or youth leader.

The views covered by the proposals set out by Mr Clarke would be those which:

Foment terrorism or seek to provoke others to terrorist acts; justify or glorify terrorism; foment other serious criminal activity or seek to provoke others to serious criminal acts; foster hatred which may lead to "intra-community violence" in the UK; advocate violence in support of particular beliefs; any the Government considers to be "extreme views that are in conflict with the UK's culture of tolerance".
Liking it up till that last line, but laws that cover "Any the government considers....." ? Maybe I'm just paranoid :roll:

Livingston was on the news, apparently we should apply the Mandela test in this matter. Basically supporting and preaching terrorism should only be illegal if we don't agree with regime/system against which it is directed.

Duty rumour (unconfirmed) is the "self-appointed leader of Talibanistan's Muslim community" has been told to pack his bags. Still trying to get confirmation on that , but I'll be opening the bubbly if it is true :D

I'd be interested to see the wording under which people will be expelled and the time frames we'll be looking at along with the process that's being proposed. Does it allow for the numerous appeals and such or will it be a single statement writ stating facts, times dates and conclusion.

Where do we stand under the law and what measures to protect?
