Asked where the Prime Minister stood on the argument between the Respect Party, the Police, and members of the Muslim Council concerning the methods employed by the Police during counter-terrorist operations, the PMOS said that as the Prime Minister said in his web-interview yesterday, he believed that everyone should support the Police in facing what was a very real threat. That was right and proper. It was only 11 months ago, to the day in fact, that the nature of that very real threat was all too obvious. The Prime Minister believed that was the view of everyone in our society, including the Muslim community. It was certainly the view expressed to him by members of the Muslim community. Put to him that no one had elected these self-appointed members of the Muslim community, the PMOS said that the Muslim community as a whole expressed its view not just through one outlet but through a variety of ways and was fully supportive of the police.

Asked if he believed it was highly irresponsible to call for non-cooperation with the Police, the PMOS said that anyone who made a call like that had to explain how that helped to fight the kind of terrorism that we saw in London on 7th July last year, and how it would help protect the community at large.
