We needed to hear Anjem Choudary

Anjem Chaudry

Anjem Choudary

BBC’s Today programme has taken some stick over John Humphry’s interview and that the BBC paid for Choudary’s taxi “out of licence fee income”. I disagree fundamentally. I was stunned and sickened to hear this venom-filled preacher of hate but people need to hear him and to understand there are a few fanatics like him, perverted by a religion that would not recognise his beliefs and filled with a loathing for his country of birth, for the rule of law that protects him and for the democracy that allows him to spout his venom.

I can’t believe that his invective would influence 99% of our population but all decent law-abiding citizens need to know what we face from fanatics like Choudary and they need to add their voice of protest against his fanatical hatred.

Given his desire for a state applying Sharia law, his contempt for the rule of law and his loathing of democracy, we should be putting him on the first plane we can find to any country that best meets his stated desires. No ceremony; no expensive legal process with lawyers’ bills paid out of legal aid; no right of appeal; no bleeding heart Deputy Prime Minister crying “foul”. Just get him out of our country and we will all be a little safer. Of course he has rights so give him a sandwich and a bottle for his flight and a sleeping bag for when he arrives. Until that blessed release is effected, the authorities need to watch Chaudary like a hawk and ensure taxpayers are not funding his evil intentions.
