Confused about why he's still here
AFTER days of listening to my husband droning on incessantly about radical Islamist cleric Abu Qatada, pictured above, still being in this country at our expense, could someone please explain to me why this should be, so as I can explain to my "beloved" and perhaps get some peace at last.
I share my husband's concerns, and I cannot for one minute understand why Qatada is still here, perhaps for different reasons though.
Britain has been implicated in many situations where people like Qatada have been flown to foreign countries and supposedly tortured, so what makes him any different?
If anything, given Britain's supposedly dreadful ill-treatment of known terrorists in this way, I would have thought that the last place he would wish to stay would be here – unless the income support and housing benefits he receives from our taxes far outweigh any unpleasantness he is in fear of. Surely the Home Secretary, and all others concerned, has missed a trick here and could have got rid of him years ago on one of the rendition flights the world and its aunty has found us guilty of.
How is the "torture" he is likely to receive here any different from that supposedly to be offered to him in Jordan?
If anyone has an answer for my husband David, please make sure you don't use big words; he'll only start arguing about them with me.
As well as also wanting Qatada out of this country for ever, I just want some peace and quiet for a change.
