Britain Unveils World’s “Toughest” Counter-Terrorism Law

The British government has unveiled sweeping new counter-terrorism measures which—if approved by Parliament—would give the United Kingdom some of the “toughest powers in the world” to fight Islamic terrorism.

The government argues that the new powers—intended to prevent British jihadists from fighting abroad and to stop them from returning if they do—are necessary to keep Britain safe.

Civil liberties groups counter that the measures are “draconian” in scope and represent a dramatic expansion of government surveillance powers, ones that are ripe for misuse if they are not matched by strong safeguards.

    The mere PRESENCE of these people (Muslums and assorted third-worlders) make us all less safe and consequently less free.

    • Now if only we could do something about the 5th Columnists.

    I am surprised there are not laws already on the books for traitors, I think this is one the main downfalls of western governments, they have a pathological need to make laws wen they already have laws to do the job.

    The most potent & only counter-terrorism law will be:
    1. Close all Mosques & islamic centers in western & every other Non-muslim countries
    2. Send these parasites back to their respective sh*tholes & let them sort out their problems themselves in their own lands. Libtard, leftist, loony, islamic apologists will go along with them to better understand their plight.
    3. Don’t allow any more mohammedans in any western (or Non-muslim) countries.
    Problem solved with least amount of resources (men & financial).

    • A moratorium is needed.

        at the very least

    I was half expecting to read they were going to start by cracking down on UKIP.
