Its new report tries to brand Tory MPs and gender-critical feminists as threats to democracy.

This week, Michael Gove, the UK government’s communities secretary, published a new definition of ‘extremism’. He defined it as ‘the promotion or advancement of an ideology based on violence, hatred or intolerance’, which has the aim of undermining ‘the UK’s system of liberal parliamentary democracy and democratic rights’. The definition is not statutory and won’t criminalise groups deemed ‘extremist’. But it will prevent the government from engaging with or funding them. And ultimately, it will stigmatise anyone who is classified as an extremist.
