Cameron’s New Year Message Focuses on Fighting IS, Reforming Europe

In a New Year’s message issued by Prime Minister David Cameron, he has asked all Britons to remain “loyal” to their country as he vowed to crack down on Islamic State (IS) sympathisers. In his remarks, the Prime Minister stressed that 2016 would be a “test of our mettle” as he pledged action against their “poisonous narrative.” He stressed that the UK should “revel” in its way of life rather than “appease” extremists, and all who live in the country must sign up to its values.

According to the statement issued by the Prime Minister said, he mentioned that “these are the big challenges of our age, some of the biggest our nation has ever faced and this year is a test of our mettle – whether we put up with poverty or put an end to it; ignore the glass ceiling or smash it; abandon the tenant or help make them a homeowner; appease the extremist or take apart their ideology piece by piece.”

Moreover, Mr Cameron also mentioned his drive to reform Europe ahead of a possible referendum this year. He alleged that “we will get Britain a better deal in Europe, give families the peace of mind they crave and we will make our country even more secure.” Referring to the IS, he stated that “when our national security is threatened by a seething hatred of the West, one that turns people against their country and can even turn them into murderous extremists, I want us to be very clear: you will not defeat us.”
