UK government reveals 'unacceptable behaviour' list

The Government's ongoing work to tackle terrorism and extremism took another step forward today as the Home Secretary published a list of certain types of 'unacceptable' behaviour.

Charles Clarke said this would form the basis for excluding and deporting individuals from the UK.

The list, finalised following a two-week consultation, makes clear that the Home Secretary will use his powers to deport and exclude from the UK those who engage in these types of behaviour.

It makes clear that those who 'would attempt to foment terrorism or provoke others to commit terrorist acts' are not welcome in the UK.

The list of unacceptable behaviours is indicative rather than exhaustive, said Mr Clarke.

It covers any non-UK citizen whether in the UK or abroad who uses any medium - including distributing material, preaching or running a website - to express views which:

foment, justify or glorify terrorist violence in furtherance of particular beliefs;
seek to provoke others to terrorist acts;
foment other serious criminal activity or seek to provoke others to serious criminal acts; or
foster hatred which might lead to inter-community violence in the UK

i find that last one quiet interesting myself , as it will be double edged , it will do the main job of helping to stop these 'terrorist web sites' which i support , and it will also put a stop to the far right in the UK using terrorism as a means to attack islam , hopefully once this goes through , a lot more care and thought (at least in the UK) will go into what people write and how it can be viewed

so good news all round i feel
