After riddance of Miliband rubbish, what about Qatada?

Peter Oborne is spot-on this morning. David Miliband is nothing but a greedy little failure throwing the sort of petulant hissy-fit that he could have learned from Edward Heath. Yet as Oborne points out, the BBC, Guardian and Common Purpose media establishment are reacting as though JFK had ceded the 1960 Democratic candidateship to Adlai Stevenson. Miliband was no JFK. He was just a spoilt, privileged rich kid with no experience of life and an enormous sense of entitlement who believed politics was the surest route to great wealth and fame. I hope he makes a success of his new life in America, and I hope even more that he never returns to the shores of this land.

In the farce that Qatada's continued avoidance of deportation to Jordan has become, it is important not to blame our judges. Unlike the rag-bag collection of untrained, unqualified political has-beens with a key to the dressing-up box who make up the ECHR, the Master of the Rolls sitting with LLJ Elias and Richards applied the law perfectly in rejecting the Home Secretary's appeal. We've dug ourselves into this mess, and though Mr Othman deserves little more than a trip to Tower Green and the keen blade of the headsman's axe we must dig ourselves out by the same convoluted legal means.

Two very astute observations Raedwald.

Milibands?

One down... One to go...

And I expect that eventually Mr. Qatada will get the message.

Miliband senior was just a useful idiot for the Bilderbergers, and is useful in Parliament no longer. His brother was seen as a slightly less useful idiot - but thanks to the unions, it looks like he'll be PM in 2015 and just as willing as Big Bro' to dance to the tune of the Kommissars.

Spot on, R.

The idiots in parliament agreed that EU law would be superior to ours, and that the ECHR would have jurisdiction over us, but every time the consequences of this become apparent, they throw up their hands in horror.

You did it, guys, it was your choice not ours, if you don't like it change it back - btw to change it you have to leave the EU. Hard luck!

Oh and btw: "rag-bag collection of untrained, unqualified political has-beens with a key to the dressing-up box"

Genius.

I may steal...

"convoluted legal means"? On the contrary, it is time we said "sod that" to that approach, put the twunt on a plane to Jordan and sent him a bill for whatever he has cost us. Fuck what the courts say on this one, grow a pair, May, and do what France and Italy regularly do, i.e. ignore the courts.

If the "security services"sould be persuaded to allow their intercepts to be allowed as evidence in court, we'd be rid of this shit in 30 seconds - & this COULD have been done 5 years ago.
THAT is where the blame lies, because we (supposedly) have the evidence, but it won't be l placed before the courts.
Noting at all to do with the EUHCR, actually, & everything to do with guvmint incompetence.

Couldn't we just find another fake charity - abroad preferably - to make Qatada its chief executive at around £250,000 pa + expenses?

That would be the unions thatare mandated to ask their members if they wanted to pay a political levy ?
And who voted yes, by a very large margin ?
A democratic donation ?
Personally, I regard the whole lot of them as puppets, Tory-Labour-LibDem. All paid by people to look after their interests.
