NEIL MITCHELL: Finally we’re talking ‘zero tolerance’ – so what is that?
At last the promise is ‘zero tolerance’.
Zero tolerance of Islamic extremism.
Zero tolerance of hate preachers.
Zero tolerance of returned fighters.
That’s the message from Britain, via what will be seen as one of the important speeches in history by Theresa May.
So what about Australia?
It took British police eight minutes to act and kill the three terrorists; comparisons are being made to our reaction with the suspected terrorist on the Malaysia Airlines plane last week.
There are people walking around Australia who police know were fighting in Iraq or Syria with ISIS, but they can’t meet the level of proof; do we change the level of proof?
Is it time to forgo rights?
Inclusion or hardline?
