This morning came news that Home Secretary Alan Johnson is proscribing Islam4UK and its associated cover organisations.

And about time too. But why did it take so long?

David Cameron asked why they hadn't been banned at PMQs no fewer than 48 days ago, on November 25th, when he pointed out that this organisation had described the 9/11 bombers as "magnificent" people and had called for "blood on the streets of London and New York".

Conservatives have made similar demands for proscription of Hizb ut-Tahrir and Hizbollah. Will the Government drag its feet on taking action against them too?
