It all boils down to deciding if we are going to take a moral stand against torture.
Even though the Jordanians have promised not to wire him personally up to the mains, he will still stand trial and face evidence that has been extracted from others under torture.
Ergo, sending him back is incompatible with an anti-torture stance.
Fine by me. Freedom isn't free and sometimes you have to pay a price like having this malignant twat walking around free and easy.
It is a price I think is well worth paying.'Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear'?

Perfectly fine Micawber .... so long as if one of his acolytes whom he inspires to bomb the carp out of us, the people blown up are your family, Piannos and like minded liberals and not mine.

I repeat my earlier point. If somebody is guilty of inciting violence or terrorism, or is plotting to undertake either activity themselves, then there are laws with which to charge them and they should be given a fair trial just as anybody else would be.
You cannot, simply by labelling something as 'terrorism', justify bypassing the judiciary for political convenience. That is McCarthyism by another name."If a terrorist organisation wanted to knock out the moral compass of Britain, all they'd have to do is to kill 100 celebrities at random. The entire country would have an instant nervous breakdown."

Fine, when he gets released, have a car waiting to take him straight to Palestine, one of his nationalities, and let the Jordanians know what flight he's onSilence may be golden, but duct tape is more effective, and that comes in silver......

He claimed asylum in this country. He has never, as far as I'm aware, worked, paid taxes or otherwise contributed to British society. He's a parasite and he has repaid the generosity of the the British people by advocating terrorism against non-Muslims. Including the murder of women and children.
We owe him nothing, and he should be deported as soon as humanly possible. And I'm sorry, but I don't give a fuck if the Jordanians make him star in a remake of Hostel.Democracy is not for the people.

London: its "buzz" and "vibrancy"... can be codewords for drugs, late-night noise and multi-culturalism run (literally) riot.

And the women come out to cut up what remains,
