Its an election year. Remember when Tony BLiar promised he would kick out 500 Islamic clerics? How many did he deport?
Deport first, ask questions later: ‘Fed up’ Cameron reveals plans to remove terror suspects before they launch appeals
- New proposals will mean deportees can only appeal while in UK
- Measures will stop the likes of Abu Qatada using human rights claims
- Could remove 4,000 foreign rapists and muggers from Britain’s streets
Thanks to Vlad Tepes who acidly remarks:Â I notice that certain European leaders, most notably Germany, France and England, tend to make a lot of rational noises in the press right before they do absolutely nothing.
In other news:
“Successive British Governments continue to tolerate the existence of large charities that encourage and provide for Islamist terror groups. By failing to separate British Muslims from the Islamist charities that exploit them, we flatter and legitimize supporters of terrorism as humanitarians and community leaders. In the US, the charity Interpal is a proscribed organization: when you help terror groups build homes, you are also helping terror groups build bombs.”
Terror suspects could face a new system of being deported before they get the chance to hold a full appeal, David Cameron revealed yesterday.
The Prime Minister said he was ‘fed up’ with the likes of hate-preacher Abu Qatada using a string of human rights appeals to remain in the UK.
Mr Cameron went on: ‘That’s why I’m keen to move to a policy where we deport first, and suspects can appeal later.’
Under this new arrangement, deportees would only be able to appeal against the decision while still in this country – suspending their removal – if they faced ‘a real risk of serious, irreversible harm’.
Currently, nobody can be put on a plane until all their appeals to British courts – and Strasbourg – have been exhausted.
The proposals go further than ministers have ever previously suggested.
But last night government officials were unable to provide further details of how the new regime would operate.
It was also unclear whether it would apply only to suspected terrorists.
Currently, there are 4,000 foreign rapists, muggers and other criminals walking the streets who the UK cannot kick out.
If there’s a will, there’s a way. Successive UK governments never had the will to do anything about it. They are simply too busy sucking up to their Muslim overlords.
New rules limited only to the extradition of terror suspects would fall far short of the demands made by Tory MPs for a wide-ranging overhaul of human rights law.

There are also question marks over whether Mr Cameron’s idea would be acceptable to either the Liberal Democrats or, crucially, the European Court of Human Rights.
The “European Court of Human Rights” is Â a pigsty. The ECHR is run by the most corrupt, unelected Â perverts in the service of world government, socialism and Islam. If David Cameron was serious, the first thing he would do is to pull out the rug from under them and make sure they can’t do any more damage.
Ministers would have to explain how, in the event of a terror suspect winning their appeal from overseas, they would be able to locate the terror suspect and bring them back to Britain.
Abu Qatada has used a string of human rights appeals to remain in the UK at the taxpayer’s expense
Strasbourg has taken a hard-line on removing anybody to a country where torture or ill-treatment takes place.
Qatada’s deportation to Jordan was blocked by Strasbourg on the grounds not that he would be harmed himself, but that some of the evidence used against him may have been obtained by torture.
He is currently living in a Â£400,000 London house – paid for by the taxpayer – pending an appeal by Home Secretary Theresa May.
Last night Tory MP Dominic Raab, who has campaigned to stop the abuse of human rights law by foreign criminals, said: ‘The Prime Minister is absolutely right to embrace fundamental deportation reform.
‘For it to work, we will need an Act of Parliament that lays down the law in clear terms, so ingenious judges with other agendas – at home and in Strasbourg – can’t subvert the common sense system the British public want put in place.’
In October last year, Home Secretary Theresa May said there was a need to reduce ‘the wholly unacceptable delays’ that have occurred in the extradition process for terror suspects.
She said there was ‘scope for reforming rights of appeal, streamlining the stages, expediting cases through the court and looking again at the provision of legal aid for terrorist suspects’.
Yesterday, Mr Cameron also voiced frustration with the pace of change on immigration reform, which he said was ‘just an issue where there is quite a profound disagreement between the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives’.
The Prime Minister said it is ‘an issue of the absolute centre ground of British politics”
