What are'unacceptable behaviors'?

Why do I feel so uneasy about this big, brave plan to exclude people from the UK if their presence is deemed 'not conducive to the public interest'.

I am really concerned that those it's aimed at - people who seek to 'foment' terrorism' - will not get caught and instead, as we've seen in the past, the proposed list of 'unacceptable behaviors' will be used to discriminate against people who have every right to come here and/or who desperately need to seek refuge in the UK.

Isn't this, anyway, a case of closing the gate after the proverbial horse has bolted? I want to see more details about these 'new powers' and the impact they might have.

I agree with what you say.
And I like to add that if the UK government wants to act against terrorism, it should stop supporting the Islamic regime of Iran and other islamic regimes and organisations. The UK government like other western governments closed it's eyes to terror that the islamic regime of Iran imposed on people in Iran for last 26 years.
You cannot stop islamists here while you are supporting islamists in the world, like Iranian regime.

I find these pronouncements sickening. Since Blair's announcement I've been trying to figure out how to write to denounce these measures without falling foul of them by implication.
