If Baroness Jones is on the Met's domestic extremist list, then so should I be.

Baroness Jones, who used to be a member of the disbanded police watchdog the Metropolitan Police Authority said as a Green Party politician some of her views could be seen as extreme by some.

"They are using a label of 'domestic extremist' for people who are publicly elected, have never been arrested and have no criminal background. I do think it is a waste of their time," she said.

The Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) defines domestic extremism as individuals or campaign groups that carry out "criminal acts of direct action in furtherance of what is typically a single-issue campaign", adding that the groups usually seek to change legislation outside of the normal democratic process.

The Met said the National Domestic Extremism and Disorder Intelligence Unit database contains about 2,500 individual records.

I shall be very offended indeed if I am not on the their list, after so many years of making my views known to the political establishment.

I have been arrested and have a criminal record.

I have never ever denied being an extremist when accused of this on social media, explaining that "Extreme error requires extreme correction."

Surely it can be said that a number of the proposals at can be said to be in some way "extremist"?

I have even hinted darkly at mutiny and a military coup. Indeed, I have already identified whom I would most like to lead my proposed military coup at

I have also recently questioned the moral validity of British values at

What more do I have to do to actually get on this list? I really don't want to advocate and commit violence and terrorism.

Who shall I write to at the Met to bring this to their attention?
