This is an extract from the speech delivered by Chris Grayling, shadow Home Secretary, at the Tory party conference in Manchester yesterday.
The Home Office has another key responsibility.
The security of our people and of our nation.
To take the lead in the battle against terrorism.
And the fight against an ideology of hate and violence.
An ideology that damages the reputation of decent, law abiding British Muslims as well as threatening life and limb.
And let’s be clear. That ideology wants to destroy the civil liberties that make this country what it is. No Government should allow them to do so, and the way this Government has eroded those liberties is shameful and must be reversed.
Our police and security services have done a magnificent job in protecting us against the terrorist threat.
We owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
But we are still not tough enough on those who spread a doctrine of hate in Britain.
So I will immediately ban Hiz b’ut Tahrir, and any other group that actively incites hatred and violence.
We also have extremists using video links to hold meetings with banned preachers of hate from overseas who urge violence against our society.
If I am Home Secretary the people who organise those meetings will be arrested and prosecuted.
Under this Government the extremists have been free to protest on our streets and incite violence and hatred in the most blatant ways.
We cannot and we will not allow this to continue.
