RUNNING THE PLACE, WE NEEDN'T MARCH TO BAN SPEECH WE DISLIKE:
Blair wins fight to ban glorifying of terrorism (Philip Webster and Greg Hurst, 2/16/06, Times of London)
TONY BLAIR secured legislation outlawing the glorification of terrorism last night after accusing the opposition parties of trying to weaken it and after beating off another backbench rebellion.
The passing of the legislation is likely to pave the way for the banning of extremist Muslim groups such as Hizb Ut-Tahrir, an Islamist splinter group that aims to establish a Muslim state across the Middle East under religious law and preaches that Western-style democracy is unacceptable.
