    Nay. This is a free country, and if religious preachers want to speak in a non-English language then that's their prerogative, and the same goes for elected officials and political parties. It doesn't hurt anyone.

    Also, given that this proposes to severely restrict freedom of speech, I will now bring this bill up whenever the author next attempts to use defence of British culture, values or traditions as an excuse for restricting Muslim immigration.

    A UKIP leader trying to oppress minorities. Tell me something new.

    EDIT: And not only that, he's not-so-secretly trying to repress nationalist parties, and even for example the French Charles De Gaulle school in London.

    , I have came to believe that the best way to tackle extremism is to help support and to include them in a inclusive society that way this is no resentment by minorities towards the state etc ..however I do understand that some people will not integrate into society so more harsh options may be needed to deal with the few that won't

    What a ridiculous attempt to try and control speech. And it's not as though this does anything to discourage religious extremism. It's a bill seemingly borne of no more than a visceral hate of that which is foreign and religious.

    There are no notes, which is a shame because it would have been nice to see some kind of justification for this bill.

    All we get is

    "Ensure that only the appropriate language is used in the appropriate situation"

    which is a remarkably asinine pleonasm.
