**"And don't tell me about human rights legislation. That remit only runs here with the agreement of the British Government."**
So, you would suggest what - that we act in defiance of the European Court of Human Rights, is that what you would do?
I can hardly think that there is a single right-thinking person in this country who isn't horrified by what has happened with regard to this detestable man. He's a threat to our national security as long as he remains on British soil, and the government knows that better than we do.
They - the government - will use any legal means possible to get Abu Qatada out of our country; of that I'm quite sure. David Cameron knows only too well the extent of public feeling about the man. That he's still here is the fault of a European court which has betrayed us, and betrayed the spirit of the European Convention on Human Rights. It's a total disgrace, but you don't demonstrate the validity of your case by openly defying the ruling of the European court. You do it by legal means, and that, I'm sure, is what is being worked on as we speak.
