A Stasi State

This particular section of the UK Column programme deals with the measures being taken by the government to tackle extremism.

Published 22 October 2015

"Teachers, child care providers, local authorities, NHS, Border Force, prisons, probation, housing authorities, mental health and others are now required to spy on children and adults under the guise of preventing extremism."
"Counter-Terrorism policy and legislation is reserved to the Westminster Government, but many aspects of preparation, prevention and dealing with the consequences of a terrorist act in Scotland would be managed and controlled by the Scottish Government and local agencies."
"The Scottish Government is engaged in a range of activities to address the threat, which integrate with the UK Government's overarching "CONTEST" counter terrorism strategy."
Pursue. Prevent. Protect. Prepare.
