British Conservative opposition leader, Michael Howard, has called for wider governmental powers to revoke the citizen status of foreign nationals deemed a "threat to national security". Howard, the son of immigrants, claimed Britain should also seek to strengthed the British image in an attempt to curtail Islamic radicalism.
Britain needs a stronger sense of national identity, Conservative leader Michael Howard has told the BBC.

"We should be British first and British last, while staunchly adhering to our respective faiths," Mr Howard said.

"You have to have allegiance to our values and the British way of life," the Conservative leader added.

Mr Howard is calling for wider use of powers to revoke the citizenship of foreign nationals seen as a threat to national security.

Nothing like whipping up nationalistic fervor in times of a crisis. Will Mr.Howard claim responsibility for the inevitable influx of hate crimes now? After all he has deemed multiculturalism as "outdated".

If the best way to treat foreign born citizens who are threats to national security is to remove them from this country, what would Mr.Howard and Charles Clarke suggest for British born citizens? Shall we arrest every one who doesnt share the governments thoughts?

Very dangerous times and it reeks of Hitler's Germany. Whip up nationalistic sentiment, target a specific minority, justify targeting them all. Whats next?
