WHAT a farcical situation we have today!

On one hand we have David Cameron, all macho and aggressive, telling us how we must do our utmost to combat the “Islamic Fundamentalist Threat” in North Africa, when at the same time we are unable to deliver a convicted agitator and advocate of violence and murder, living here in the lap of luxury, to justice in his own country, where he is wanted for the same actions as those in Algeria. The other laughable point is that we will be supplying the Algerians with “intelligence”. Firstly, have we asked the EU if we can do it? Secondly, he’d better be quick as many of the people who are in a position to supply it will soon be redundant and in the dole queue.
