That's the one.

And here I go inciting violence and terrorism - John Wyndham, through  
that novel, suggests that the only way to deal with an intolerant,  
militant mindset is to exterminate it. The Sealanders (the telepathic  
society who rescue the mutant children) are essentially preparing for  
a war that they believe is inevitable, between the religious  
fundamentalists (such as the people of Waknuk) and everyone else.

So the *second* thing we do, let's kill all the extremists![1]

[1] and to you, M(r|s). Prime Minister's Secret Service agent, I  
suggest becoming familiar with the works of Shakespeare, and  
developing an appreciation for political humour. Otherwise when the  
truly stupid people of the world take the call to kill all the  
lawyers seriously, you'd have to go and find every person ever  
involved in a production of Shakespeare's "Henry VIII" and charge  
them with treason!  The irony!
