Today the European Court of Human Rights will decide whether this country will be allowed to extradict Captain Hook and five other bastards to the USA to face charges of terrorism.
Now my views on the ECHR and the ability of the courts of the Fourth Reich to overrule the highest courts in the UK are well known, but it now seems that the Americans are also up in arms with them.
“This is just another example of Britain’s mistake in allowing European institutions to develop to the extent they have. It is yet another infringement on British sovereignty that undercuts its ability to cooperate with the United States.
So far it has cost the British taxpayer over two and a half million quid to keep these six bastards in high security prisons while we faff allowing foreigners to tell us what to do. And that’s without what’s been spent on legal costs, including legal aid for the men, and thousands more on benefit claims for their families.
What a bunch of mugs we are in this country to put up with this crap!
All six argue that the conditions of their detention in a “supermax” prison would amount to inhuman and degrading treatment under Article 3 of the Human Rights code. Not of course that it’s in any way inhuman for people like Abu Hamza to go around preaching that all non-muslims are fair game for a spot of good old fashioned butchering.
In the meantime, there is a glimmer of hope that Teresa May may grow some balls and deport them anyway and to hell with the ECHR!
I’d love to see it, but I’m not holding my breath…

So Strasbourg has graceously agreed that we can get rid of them, but there is a sting in the tail because there is YET ANOTHER court above that one to which an appeal can be made which means we are stuck with this shower of shit for another three months before we can ship them out!!
Personally, I’d have them on a plane this afternoon – preferably with insufficient fuel to cross the Atlantic. Dropping them out over the Titanic site has a certain appeal to it…
