The discredited Prevent programme which New Labour euphemistically called " preventing violent extremism" is to be dismantled by Home Secretary Theresa May.
London Muslim like many others identified Prevent as simply a spying operation on Muslims and a mechanism for the establishment to funnel huge sums of money to comedians like Quiliam along with other recovering extremists who write books then become Counter Terrorism "experts".
The Spooks wont like this one bit which is why they in the guise of John Yates have shamefully been whoring themselves around what was Fleet Street talking up the scaremongering nonsense that these cuts "will raise the terror risk".
The only strategy we need to prevent violent extremism which costs nothing all at all to the taxpayer is stop invading Muslim lands and killing innocent Muslims. Churchill once said the Americans will always do the right thing after they had exhausted all the alternatives however, sadly it's becoming true of we British.
Once again I find myself in agreement with the new Con Dem Govt or perhaps they followed my advice and sadly once again Alan Johnson the Postman has shamed himself and the New Labour aspect of the Party by aligning himself with Prevent.
Incidentally, London Muslim wonders what odds the bookies are offering on the state of alert being heightened while these cuts are implemented. I'd hazard a guess that the Spooks come up with a 2012 security scare story or perhaps Osama Bin Laden being sighted at a chip shop near the Olympic stadium in Stratford.
