    UKIP and other such organisations have been stating that we should block all refugees entering the country & Europe (which would endanger their lives), the threat that they woudl do this is used to try and influence the government and intimidates Muslims for the purpose of advancing their political and racial (Nigel has said many times he'd be scared to live next to a Romanian) veiws. So it meets all the criteria in the 2000 terrorism act to be designated a terrorist organisation by the home sec.
    By this logic those advocating they come are also terrorists, as that also endangers their lives... Well done Aph on making yourself, along with everybody else, a terrorist.

    I don't belive so. By letting people in we are not threatening anyone.

    So there is absolutely 0 risk in travelling or living in Europe?

    This reasoning is absurd. I'd strongly consider reading some case law on the interpretation of the Act in your position.

    There is 0 risk in nothing in life but death.

    The point is about threatening people not putting them at risk.

    There are a lot more reasons why they could be considered terrorists but that was something I thought that that was one of teh more legalese arguments.

    What action will the government take to ensure the minimalist risk to the British people incase of any terrorist attacks!

    Could I ask wether the home minister woudl consider adding UKIP, BNP, Britain First and any other such parties to the list for terrorist organisations?
    I will not be placing these Parties on the list for terrorist organisations. I am an advocate for free speech and will attempt to block any attempts to undermine this.

    So where's the problem, bar you not liking any of those groups. If we want to be as strict as you are trying to be I'm pretty sure we could find some way that you're a terrorist.

    They are threatening to send people back into war zones and inciting hatred and social in-cohesion, this is a threat.

    Free speech only extends to not putting others in harm. If your use of free speech is to incite hatred or violence then you should not have free speech. Woudl you not agree?

    As Foreign Secretary I believe we need to realise that we and the Russians have a common enemy in Islamic State. I am certainly open to taking the view that maintaining Assad in power for the short term may be the best solution in taking down the principal threat in the region that IS constitute. The eventual aim for Syria, as it is really for every other country in the world, is to have a secular or near-secular democracy.

    The problem for the West is that we're kind of damned if we support these dictators because they are often the most stable option for government, and damned if we try to remove them.

    The entirety of the world outside Europe is a war zone? How is the news not covering this?! When did war break out in France, incidentally?

    You also included simply not letting them into Britain, so staying in France, so when did it become an active warzone? When did Most of the Middle East for the matter?

    I said not letting them into Europe. And most of the Middle East is a war zone.

    We all know you want it to be so, but the USSE does not exist just yet

    See above

    And most of the Middle East is a war zone.
    Asia Minor (Turkey) is not a war zone; Persia (Iran) isn't either; I'll give you that Mesopotamia (pretty much the bit IS is in, most of Iraq and Syria) is a war zone; some of the Levant (which has some overlap with Mesopotamia with both the ancient and 20th century borders) is a war zone, but most isn't, especially if taking the ancient extent; the Arabian peninsula, that bit that makes up a massive amount of the Middle East, is not a war zone; nor is Egypt. Not much of the Middle East is a war zone, in case you didn't realise, Mesopotamia does not make up the majority of the middle east

    Or see if we can set a record for shortest government.
