British Prime Minister condemns ‘sickening’ Finsbury Park terror

The Prime Minister said there had been “too much tolerance of extremism” over several years.She said: “Terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms, and our determination to tackle them must be the same, whoever is responsible.

“That this why this Government will act to stamp out extremist and hateful ideology, both across society and on the internet.

“It is why we will be reviewing our counter-terror strategy and ensuring that police and security services have the powers they need.”She made the comments outside Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee.

Cabinet minister Sajid Javid, who is Muslim, spoke briefly to concerned residents as he visited the scene of the attack this morning.

He said: “The perpetrator of this attack, and those terrible attacks that we saw recently in Manchester and London, their intention is to seek to divide society.

“My message to them is that they will always, always fail.

“This Government will always take a zero-tolerance approach to hate crime, including anti-Muslim hate crime, wherever we find it.”
