Theresa May & John Humphrys, "Theresa May asked to define extremism in new counter extremism bill", BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, via Christian Concern Youtube channel (14 May 2015)


Pondering further UK Prime Minister David Cameron's remarks on Monday about "extremism" (which Glenn Greenwald tweeted as "one of the creepiest and most authoritarian speeches you'll ever hear"), it's nice to know we can turn to one of his key colleagues for further "clarification". Quizzed in May by BBC Radio 4 Today Programme's John Humphrys as to what the government means by "extremism" and the "British values" it apparently offends, Mrs. May seemed to be unable to explain.

Perhaps we should therefore turn back to David Cameron for further comment:

"For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone." [Press release : Counter-Extremism Bill - National Security Council meeting (13 May 2015)]
