What if the threat is not only these 500 people that may or may not come back to the UK?
How many Muslims are there in the UK?
How many of them are possibly Jihadists?
Agreed, those are the KNOWN ones, the scary ones are the UNKNOWN ones that are still in the country waiting for their moment of glory to attack from within

Short of WWIII actually occurring Scotland will most definitely be having said referendum!
Anything less and I imagine Cameron would have a possible civil war on his hands to deal with on top of the European problems.
...There have been calls for powers to impose "internal exile" on suspects, a key part of the old control orders regime, to be restored.
He stressed that there had already been significant steps, including making it easier to seize passports of suspected British jihadists, and emergency legislation to make communications data available to police and security services was "already delivering results".

Must be an election or a war coming up.
Kind of counter productive.

Here is the really stupid thing about this. The government know the names and faces of every person who has left the country with the intention of adding their strength to the ISIS jihad against... Everything.
Therefore, when they arrive home, it should be no problem to simply detain them the second they get back here, silently, quickly, and with no messing about. All it takes, is for the security services to post a unit of intelligence officers and Special Branch or whatever they are called these days, at each airport terminal, whose sole job would be to ensure that if any single one of these radicalised persons returns home, that they do not even get out of the connecting tunnel which links the plane to the terminal, without being clapped in irons.
It's a no brainer, it is not difficult. So why the bloody drama?

On Monday he also wants to discuss removing their citizenship.
I say good!
Let those extremists become without citizenship,they deserve worse.
I don't think it would be possible to ban flights from and to the Middle East....too many businesses, too much traffic.
But capturing these low lives would be a great start.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I can see were your coming from but with a lack of knowledge, what were the policy's when the IRA were a threat to the mainland UK from what I remember no one's voice was permitted on TV I'm not sure about the rest but it would be interesting to know.
Yep, that was idiotic.
But no government has the right to dictate what its people believe and fight for. Democracy doesn't allow for it, once you start criminalising thought and belief you become everything we purport to be against.
Further, I don't necessarily approve of their methods but I'll always defend the right of those to fight for what they believe in - better than doing so simply for money as our military does.
Finally, I don't think another type of powerful society in the globe would be a bad thing, Its time the west had its wings clipped.
wer much to young to deal with thesee problems but they keep thrusting them self's on us... untill finaly wer foced to think of the solution
