It is often stated by many informed parties that for a significant period (ending 9/11or 7/7 or maybe not) consecutive British Governments maintained a policy of allowing Islamic radicals a haven in the UK as long as the focus of their activities was elsewhere. As in 'you can attack France, Israel, Egypt etc. but not us and try not to claim too much welfare benefits.' Many Countries frequently objected to this, stating that it was the equivalent to the USA's oft criticised (yet more understandable*) indirect support of the IRA. My question is this, now that this policy has turned around and bitten us on the arrse and will be doing so for many years to come, whose bright idea was it? Have we a name or at least a department? There will be a paper trail, where does it start? * as there were/are many pro IRA American voters in the US (many more than pro Islamic terror UK voters (however this may have changed today due to immigration policies)).
