The Christian Institute: Govt backtracks on ‘sinister’ faith leaders watchlist

The Christian Institute: Govt backtracks on ‘sinister’ faith leaders watchlist

A Home Office minister has signalled that the Government now has “no plans” to introduce a ‘watchlist’ for faith leaders, in a move welcomed by The Christian Institute.

Responding to letters from Christian Institute supporters, Mike Penning MP, along with other Conservative MPs, said that the Government is not planning to introduce such a measure.

A leaked draft of the Government’s counter-extremism strategy, seen by The Sunday Telegraph, indicated that ministers, rabbis and imams could be monitored and forced to undergo Government approved training.


Good news, though the fact that they came up with such an idea is a bit worrying.
