There remain significant disparities in registration levels between different demographics, for example, between those in social housing or private rented accommodation and owner-occupiers, or between older voters and 18-24s; up to a third of whom may not be registered.

It's vitally important that politicians of all parties work together to address this issue. I believe this can be done through dedicated education efforts, and by continuing to prioritise the issue by stressing what needs to be achieved

So perhaps we should stop doing ISIS' propaganda for them. Maybe we should stop making Britain a target by thinking that banning individual people will change the views of many. We should welcome these people in and challenge them in a good old fashioned debate. Maybe that would be the right thing to do. Well either that, or just ban Trump...

Trump and Carson are exploiting a very American flavor of disgruntlement -- the obsessed, conspiratorial mindset of a pocket of the population besieged by paranoia and a fear of the hidden hand.
