Mike has hailed the news that hate cleric Abu Qatada is to be deported by the Government.
The European Court of Human Rights initially blocked Abu Qatada’s deportation despite the Government believing that Qatada is a threat to national security. However, Mike has welcomed news from his colleague the Rt Hon Theresa May, Home Secretary, that Abu Qatada is to be deported within a couple of weeks.
Commenting, Mike said: “We should not flinch from deporting nefarious individuals such as Abu Qatada. He hates Britain and everything that we stand for and should not have been allowed to remain here for as long as he has. The European Court of Human Rights needs to get a grip. The rights of ordinary citizens should come before terrorist sympathising fanatics.”
