Abu Qatada.
Terrorist, incites terrorism here and gets away with it, wanted in Jordan for terrorism trial. Entered the UK on a false passport.

If - as has happened in France And Italy etc - we simply stuck him on a plane to Jordan, Britain would have faced fines of $30,000 ><.

Meanwhile, taxpayers are forking out £100,000 a week to monitor the radical cleric — on top of the estimated £3million he has cost so far in legal aid, benefits, prison and security.

Qatada, 52, had been living with his wife and five kids in a taxpayer-funded £400,000 five-bedroom home in North London. But after complaining that he needed a new house to escape demonstrations outside, on Monday cops took him to a reportedly even bigger house in the capital.


Bonkers Britain!
