BBC: David Cameron has criticised "state multiculturalism" in his first speech as prime minister on radicalisation and the causes of terrorism.
At a security conference in Munich, he argued the UK needed a stronger national identity to prevent people turning to all kinds of extremism.
He also signalled a tougher stance on groups promoting Islamist extremism.
The speech angered some Muslim groups, while others queried its timing amid an English Defence League rally in the UK.
As Mr Cameron outlined his vision, he suggested there would be greater scrutiny of some Muslim groups which get public money but do little to tackle extremism.
Ministers should refuse to share platforms or engage with such groups, which should be denied access to public funds and barred from spreading their message in universities and prisons, he argued.
"Frankly, we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and much more active, muscular liberalism," the prime minister said. [MORE]
I did not think Cameron had it in him to tackle such a topic. As bad as political correctness is in the United States, it is ten times worse in Europe. Speaking out in Europe against such a prime PC doctrine like multiculturalism with its one way rules of tolerance, is not for the faint of heart.
Cameron's idea of using one set of PC doctrines to combat another (rules of tolerance vs. multiculturalism) is an interesting concept. It will be interesting to see just how this will all work out.
