Mr Brown likes to portray himself as the man who will keep you safe from terrorism.
In yesterday's Observer Nick Cohen examined another way in which Gordon Brown is undermining the long-term security of our country: He is doing nothing about Saudi subsidy of extremist mosques. The whole article is an essential read. Cohen focuses upon the ways in which the authorities have failed to progress the findings of Channel 4's Undercover Mosque programme. That programme discovered "Saudi clerics pouring out their loathing of unbelievers" as well as "pamphlets and DVDs that attack women, Jews, Christians and explain that Aids is a Western plot." "They are available," writes Cohen, "at the bookshop of London's Regent's Park mosque, which was built with Saudi money and is run by a Saudi diplomat."
Tory MP Paul Goodman has written to Government ministers about the West Midland Police's appeasing decision to complain to OfCom about Channel 4 rather than investigate Undercover Mosque's findings.
