UK: Judges block Home Secretary from deporting convicted terrorist
The UK is slowly becoming the laughing stock of the world. Here is another case of the courts harboring a suspected terrorist – even after the government has ordered him out. I hope these ethical judges sleep well at night knowing that they are responsible for keeping terrorists safe and sound in the UK – on tax payers money. The reason these judges have used for keeping him in the UK is that to deny him access to Britain could lead to “potential injustice”. Screw the ordinary citizens of the country, who go about their normal day of plodding to work and paying their taxes. Now, wouldn’t it be grand if these turd judges would one day happen to find themselves in a Muslim court, where they could experience some of those injustices first hand? Ahh, one can only dream.

A convicted terrorist banned from Britain for being a risk to national security has been stopped from being deported by the courts.
The Tunisian terrorist is likely to use human rights legislation to argue that it is unsafe for him to be returned to his home country, so he can stay permanently in Britain.
Lord Justice Pill, Lord Justice Rix and Lord Justice Lloyd backed the terrorist’s right to be in Britain while he mounts an appeal. Lord Justice Pill commented that denying him access to Britain could lead to “potential injustice”. The case puts the judiciary and the Government at loggerheads once again, and comes after the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, warned MPs against using parliamentary privilege to reveal the identities of those who have obtained injunctions to protect their privacy.
Anthony Glees, a professor of security and intelligence at the University of Buckingham, said: “The judiciary are putting the rights of terrorists and terrorist suspects above the rights of ordinary people in this country to go about their daily lives in peace.
“This is a very dangerous precedent if it is allowed to stand. It used to be the case that if the home secretary said someone could not enter this country then that was the end of the story.”
