From todays Telegraph nice to see police time being wasted on this piece of sh1t "Muslim fanatic who shouted abuse at troops given police protection Police gave around the clock protection to a Muslim activist who allegedly hurled abuse at British soldiers after his home was attacked. Yousaf Bashir was among a group of extremists who protested against a homecoming parade in Luton earlier this month. Police had to protect him after windows were smashed at the home he shares with his parents in the town. Patrick Mercer, the Conservative MP, said: "You have to wonder whether police time wouldn't have been better spent countering terrorism." Officers were called at around 11.30pm on Friday after two windows and glass in the door at the Dellcot Close property were broken in the attack. Police were then back there at around 10.30pm on Saturday evening when one of its residents reported "suspicious" activity outside. Officers remained stationed in the street until dawn, prompting claims that the occupant had received special treatment in the form of a 24-hour police guard. Neighbour Kevin Hattle, 52, said: "I am appalled. My shed was broken into and a motorbike was stolen, but the police did not even come out." A man who answered the door at the house, where a Yousaf Bashir is listed in the electoral roll, refused to confirm if he was Mr Bashir, or if he was involved in last Tuesday's protests. But neighbours in the quiet cul-de-sac, many of whom have hung Union Jack bunting outside their houses, said they recognised Mr Bashir's face in television and newspaper reports of the protest. A Bedfordshire Police spokeswoman said: "There is no 24-hour police guard. It is what we would call a police watch. It was to give reassurance to him and also everybody else on the close. "Other residents approached us because they were concerned about the damage going on. The police watch is for everybody who lives on that close. "A police watch is an ongoing measure that we put in place for locations where we are having persistent problems and it's to pay an extra level of attention to those areas when we are able to, to provide reassurance to those people who are residents there." She added: "We will stay in that police area until any potential risk has subsided." During a homecoming march by the 2nd Bn, the Royal Anglian Regiment on March10, a group of around 20 men in traditional Islamic dress held up banners and placards that read: "Anglian Soldiers Butchers of Basra", "Anglian Soldiers Criminals, Murderers Terrorists" and "Baby killers", while shouting "terrorists" and "Anglian soldiers go to hell".
