It's taken long enough for the fount of Islamist hate-crime in Britain, Anjem Choudary, to be convicted for the first time, and no doubt he will cost us all even more in legal aid as he exhausts the appeal process, using the law he so despises to seek further freedom to hate. Even if he gets the full ten years, he'll be out in half that - free to lead the Islamist hate campaign against non-Muslims.
Choudhary has been the figurehead for a whole generation of seditious Islamists. The BBC, of course, gladly welcomed him onto Radio 4's 'Today' to spread his toxic warfare, his putrid offensive theocratic rubbish. He's had air time and newspaper column inches across the media, and no doubt even now some whining ninny in the Guardian will now complain that the Muslim community is impoverished by the absence of Choudhary's poisonous hatreds.
Let this be a clear message to all Muslims in Britain. A message that there there is no room for Sharia law, no room for the Caliphate, no room for Islamist violence in Britain; that British law is triumphant, British values paramount and that British justice will prevail.
