We must do more to tackle campus extremism

    The first anniversary of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's attempt to blow up a plane will be marked in a fortnight.

    The former University College London student's arrest sparked the creation by Universities UK, the umbrella group which represents vice-chancellors, of a working group to tackle the proliferation of extremist activity on British campuses.

    Since its formation it has uttered not a single word in public about what should be done. Our repeated attempts to interview Malcolm Grant, the UCL provost who chairs the group, have been met with a wall of silence.

    UCL's own investigation into Abdulmutallab's time there was a farcical whitewash.

    And so for the past year speakers such as Abdel Bari Atwan and Azzam Tamimi have continued to be free to spout their bile on campus.

    Some Jewish students feel that not enough is being done by the community. The Board of Deputies' "uncompromising" five-point action plan" has disappeared almost as quickly as it was drawn up in March.
