Take Abu Hamza out of the mosque and put his inflammatory rhetoric before ordinary decent people and he's exposed for what he is - a rabble-rousing nihilist careless of human life taking full advantage of our Western freedoms and liberties. Until now. This loathsome creature has now been rightly convicted of truly dreadful crimes and will now rightly die in a US prison.
Many are asking why we couldn't try him here in the UK, and I'm sure the answer will be complex - but a large part of it must be the operation of the Human Rights Act, the actions and proclivities of the ECHR and an unfounded fear that we may somehow upset Muslims in the UK by jailing a brutal killer.
Our law and that in the US are closer to each-other than either system is to the dreary Napoleonic Code of Europe. Let's build on that difference - and teach a lesson to all the would-be Islamic terrorists sheltering in Europe that that Britain is not a comfortable place for them.
David Cameron has just promised tougher measures to tackle Islamic terrorists. So that's the kiss of death to any positive changes, then.
