Prevent has failed. Time for some new ideas

In the aftermath of the Manchester attack, questions are being raised about the efficacy of the government’s counter-extremist Prevent programme. Friends of bomber Salman Abedi had reportedly contacted an official anti-terrorism hotline after becoming concerned about his behaviour. Senior members of the mosque he attended referred him to a Prevent team years before the attack. In response to these revelations, home secretary Amber Rudd says she will ‘uplift’ Prevent to make sure it has ‘effective outcomes’ in the communities it targets.

    Of course you will Amber…..then the problem will finally be properly addressed….good work….damn good work.

    But if it doesn’t make any difference are you considering putting on the brass knuckles ?
    You’ve tried brown nosing…ass kissing…various NGOs …..snitch lines …..bribery……..and etc……all to no avail….
    So you say you WILL revamp the law to expedite deportations for even jay walking….

    The only prevention is no Islam within your borders.

    Sounds to me tht Rudd is going to reduce the lunch hours of the Prevent staff from four hours to three.
