Government criticised over ‘suppressed’ extremist report

The government has been criticised for refusing to publish an internal report on the funding of UK extremist groups.

The home secretary has published a two-page summary which concluded most organisations were funded via small, anonymous British-based donations.

    So delete the personal information Amber! Saudi is the head of the terrorist snake yet May and Trump are bosom buddies with the Mediaeval theocratic despotism. There was a rare good article in the Indy saying let’s stop saying Terrorism is nothing to do with Islam and acknowledge its all to do with the obscurantist version of Islam aggressively promoted by Saudi. An oversimplification as there are Shiite terrorists too, but broadly right.
