It is "extraordinarily unlikely" that treason charges will be used against outspoken Islamic radicals, Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer has said. The Crown Prosecution Service's head of anti-terrorism is due to discuss the treason idea with Scotland Yard officers in the next few days.

"I don't think anybody has seriously been suggesting that treason is really a runner," he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
Why the Hell not? If it's on the Statute Book, bloody use it! Seriously, if the idea has been mooted by the CPS then it has legal grounds to be used. I'm fed up with softly-softly: throw the book at a few of them and it may just cause others to consider their position.
