Would our candidates care to express their views on the creeping censorship which has been invading our higher educational establishments?

We have seen reports of Jihadists returning to this country.

What will our candidates do to ensure these people are brought to justice and do not slip back into our society with their hands stained with the blood of innocent people?

Lastly, a number of Christian bishops and priests, including the first woman to be ordained in the Arab world, have been refused visitors’ visas while numerous Islamic clerics have been admitted.

Would the candidates rigorously pursue this matter?
