Tories will review Prevent policy on extremism

    A conservative government would stop all funding to groups that promote radical Islamic ideology and target money at organisations with a record of bringing Britain’s diverse communities together.

    In an interview with the JC, Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said Labour's policy risked creating ghettoes.

    He revealed that the Tories were planning an immediate review of the Prevent anti-extremism strategy, which he accused of channelling money to radical organisations.

    The change would represent a shift away from the multiculturalism policy which critics charge with creating segregated religious and ethnic communities isolated from mainstream society.

    “I very strongly believe the resources we do have available in difficult times — unless there is a compelling security reason for the spending of that money — should be aimed at those groups that break down the divides rather than accentuate them.”

    His speech at next week’s Conservative Party will "send a strong message that we will not tolerate violent extremism in this country. And we will not hesitate to move against groups or individuals who encourage it.”

    He is furious that stronger action was not taken in March against protesters in Luton who barracked British troops.
