Research, Information and Communications Unit

The Research, Information and Communications Unit is part of the HO's Office for Security and Counter Terrorism.

I'm still looking the text of the list of 'banned' words issued to ministers, as mentioned by The Sun and others.
MINISTERS have been BANNED from using words like Islamist and fundamentalist - in case they offend Muslims.

An eight-page Whitehall guide lists words they should not use when talking about terrorism in public and gives politically correct alternatives.

They are told not to refer to Muslim extremism as it links Islam to violence. Instead, they are urged to talk about terrorism or violent extremism.

Fundamentalist and Jihadi are also banned because they make an "explicit link" between Muslims and terror.
All to be expected.

Also picked up by The All-Seeing Eye.
