Dominic Grieve: Muslim extremism is a problem for all of us

Commenting after John Reid made a speech in which he called on British Muslims to do more to help root out political extremists, Shadow Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, said:

“While John Reid’s remarks are relevant he is in danger of repeating what the Prime Minister has already said: that Muslim extremism is a problem for the Muslim community. He needs to realise that it is a problem for all of us.

“John Reid says leaders have a responsibility to their community but the Government has failed to show any real leadership on this issue. They created a Muslim task force but only implemented three out of 64 recommendations.

“They have proved happy to pursue grand, headline grabbing gestures, but have not delivered when effective action was required. The Government has not shown itself able or willing to do the grinding, difficult work of eradicating the root causes of this problem.”
