ECHR meddling bastards or the deliverers of justice? Yesterday, Abu Qatada, the jihadist cleric best known as Osama bin Laden's "ambassador to Europe", won a famous victory in Strasbourg, where the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) upheld his appeal against deportation from the UK to Jordan. No matter that Qatada was a spiritual guide to the late Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, who was, for several key years, the leader of al Qaeda's franchise in Iraq and responsible for a series of unspeakable atrocities including the videotaped beheading of the Liverpudlian civil engineer, Ken Bigley, in 2004.

IMO opinion the British government should stick two fingers up at the EHCR and send this scum to Jordan, I for one do not give a shite what sort of 'justice' he would receive once there. I am fed up to the back teeth with these bloody Europeans interfering in our justice system and the sooner we leave the EHCR the better but there will be little chance of that as the pro Europe Lib Dems would not allow it to happen. However if the Tories were to win a majority in 2015 they should make it a priority.
