Cutting funding to youth clubs and provision of youth services can never be welcomed. The coalition attack on public spending will undoubtedly hit these areas, this may lead to antisocial behaviour and increase 'children hanging out on streets' something that the tory daily mail readership do not like. I don't mind seeing groups of kids chilling on the street but I can see why some people might find such groups intimidating.
Today Theresa May, the home secretary for women and equality made a distinction and chose to cut funding to youth groups attended mainly by young Muslims. She implies that instead of preventing radicalisation these youth groups promote it and this is a reason for cuts. If state funded projects fail to prevent the inculation of terrorist ideals then they need to be better managed and not wiped out. In the same way that cutting any youth club increases antisocial behaviour; targeting the youth work of one religious group for disproportionate cuts will increase marginalisation, division and extremism.
