Cameron to redefine "extremism"

Newly-elected UK Prime Minister is to extend definition of an "extremist".

In his Queen's speech on Wednesday, Cameron is also reported to announce that the new measures will provide police with more powers to clamp down on "harmful activities" of extremists.

To do this, there will be extended the legal definition of "harmful" from "public disorder, a risk of harassment, alarm or distress" to also include activities deemed to be for the "purpose of overthrowing democracy." More specifics on the types of activities considered to be promoting militant ideologies were not provided.

Under a new counter-terrorism bill that will be presented, organisations and individuals that pose a "threat to the functioning of democracy" will face major restrictions, as the Conservative party claims.

Those subject to anti-terrorism orders will be prevented from broadcasting and will have to run any written material that they are seeking to publish past the police first. The bill will also give the police ability to shut down premises that are being used to spread extremism, including mosques.
