CPS To Target "Preachers of Hate"

Sir Ken Macdonald, the Director of Public Prosecutions, has created a post of "radicalisation co-ordinator" and plans to make 5 more similar positions to tackle preachers who encouraged violence such as Abu Hamza. He is quoted in The Telegraph as saying:

The preacher of hate issue is one of growing public concern and we expect to be bringing more cases of this sort. It is dangerous and it requires a vigorous response from us and the police.

Watch this space for any reactions.
