For those of you attending Liberal Democrat Conference, there's a great fringe meeting organised by the Community Security Trust (CST), on Preventing Extremism, at which 'former extremists' will explain how Liberal Democrats can help fight extremism. The speakers include Rashad Ali (a former member of Hizb ut-Tahrir) and Matthew Collins, a former member of the National Front. Lib Dem MP Tom Brake and journalist Martin Bright are also on the panel, with the CST's Dave Rich in the chair. It's in Hall 6b of the ICC, 13.00-14.00, Tuesday 20 September (the advert says that lunch will be provided). It's in the Secure Zone, so only open to those who are registered to attend Conference. It should be a very interesting discussion.
