The real worry of course is that, yet again, this was someone based in Britain who tried to carry out this facile act, no doubt deliberately at Christmas. Yet again, while our troops fight and die in Afghanistan, supposedly to defend us from these morons, our government is at the same time waving thousands of immigrants in to the country without any proper checks. Only a few days ago it was revealed that students are being lent money so that they can 'prove' that they can pay for their studies. They then give the money back once safely in the country. Now most are coming here to work. But what students desperate for work can do....... It's another example of Labour's famous joined up government.
Furthermore, as Fraser Nelson writes in The Spectator, thanks to our ridiculous judge made libel laws, our press are prevented from properly reporting what is happening and who might be involved. These two issues need to be urgently addressed during the coming election and by our next government. The libel issue in particular, given that our MPs have nothing much to do at present, could and should be addressed as a matter of urgency and our outdated laws updated by elected politicians rather than by judges. These are fundamental issues at the root of Britain's security and basic human rights. After a year in which our politicians have been in unprecedented disrepute, here is an opportunity for this parliament to do the right thing and redeem itself a little. I have written to my MP on the issue and she, to her credit, quickly responded to say that she supported the proposed reforms. Everyone should do the same.
