Islamist extremists will be treated like paedophiles and automatically banned from working with children, the Prime Minister will announce today.
New powers will also allow parents to apply for under-18s’ passports to be removed if there are fears they have been brainwashed and might travel to Syria.
The measures are included in an updated counter-extremism strategy designed to win what David Cameron calls the ‘struggle of our generation’.
Convicted terrorists and other extremists will be put on a register that mirrors the vetting regime used by authorities to check if a person has a conviction for child sex abuse.
Cameron? I’ll believe that when I see it.
